April 17, 2024 – The Lebanon Police Department arrested 18-year-old Jonathan S. Drury in connection with a burglary that occurred in the Spence Creek Neighborhood on April 13th, 2024. Drury was taken into custody Tuesday night and charged with Aggravated Burglary, Attempted Rape, and Simple Assault.

Lebanon Police responded to a possible burglary in progress on April 13th, 2024, in the Spence Creek subdivision. Upon arrival, officers found a victim who stated that she was awakened by a male standing in her room. After a large response, officers canvassed the area and were able to secure video footage from neighboring homes.

An intense investigation ensued, and through our SafeNet LPR System, along with diligently following up with leads from several residents, detectives were able to identify Drury as a suspect.

Lebanon Flex officers immediately began searching for Drury and were able to locate him at his residence. After speaking with Drury, detectives took him into custody without incident. As the investigation continued, we were able to determine that this was a targeted attack and not at random. The bond amount and court dates are pending at this time.

A message from Chief Mike Justice on arrest in this case:

“We are thankful for the cooperation our agency received from the neighborhood in reference to this incident. I am equally as thankful for the dedication by LPD members who were determined to bring this suspect’s victimization to an end. We hope that our community can understand that, while we wish to be as transparent as possible and make timely release of information, sometimes we are restricted by the release of some information that may jeopardize our investigation. Our thoughts are with the victim of this incident.”
