Jacob Julick, the man wanted for shooting at police officers earlier this month, is now accused of trying to ram a police cruiser on Saturday.
Kenton County Commonwealth’s Attorney Rob Sanders told WLWT a warrant was filed for Julick Monday in connection to the chase. Julick is charged with attempted murder of a police officer. It is alleged that Julick tried to ram a Covington police cruiser head-on during the chase.
“He’s very dangerous. He’s armed. It’s a top priority for us and agencies who are helping us to try to catch this guy,” said Erlanger police Detective Kyle Thornberry.
Julick has been among northern Kentucky’s most wanted since early June when police said he jumped out of the passenger’s seat of a car during a traffic stop. While running away, police said he shot at officers.
“In a perfect world, Mr. Julick would cut his losses and turn himself in peacefully,” he said. “It may be tonight. It may be tomorrow. It may be next week. We’re eventually going to find him.”
U.S. Marshals are now involved in the search for Julick, police confirmed to WLWT Monday.
“They have access to a lot more resources,” Thornberry said. “Obviously, they’re federal. They can go anywhere.”
Police said Julick may be driving a gray 2007 Saturn Outlook with Kentucky license plate: 519WPC.
