Jeff Hodges is the subject of a local manhunt
A manhunt continues for a fugitive still at large after forcing two schools to be on lockdown Wednesday afternoon. Officers were still looking for Jeff Hodges, 40, as of press time last night after he fled the scene of a traffic stop near Warren County High School. Both WCHS and adjacent Hickory Creek Elementary were placed on lockdown for about 45 minutes Wednesday afternoon, but the lockdown was lifted at the end of the school day so students could leave.The incident began Wednesday afternoon when a sheriff’s deputy passed a car driven by Heather Dawn Fralix, 38, and noticed Hodges as a passenger in the vehicle.
