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.
