New charges are issued against a former LaSalle County deputy who led police on a manhunt this week.
Lowell Ambler is now charged with armed robbery, agg. robbery, and unlawful possession of a stolen vehicle. Investigators say those stem from a carjacking Wednesday in Lee County. Ambler surrendered peacefully Thursday. He was initially wanted for parole violation.
Police say he contacted the mother of a Lee County teenage girl who he’s accused of kidnapping. Ambler is due in Lee County Court next month.
