Plymouth Woman Charged with Assisting a Criminal

A Plymouth woman was arrested Thursday morning after allegedly allowing a criminal to escape custody.

Officers from the Plymouth Police Department arrived at 1509 Harrison St. to serve an arrest warrant for felon Otis Young. Tara Lee, who lives at the residence and saw police arrive, ran into the home and allegedly warned Young of the presence of police.

When officers met Lee at the door and asked where Young was, she stated that she didn’t know where he was. Otis Young was then able to jump out of a window and run from the scene. Plymouth officers attempted to locate Young with the assistance of the Indiana State Police but were unable to locate him.

Lee, 21, was taken into custody and booked into the Marshall County Jail on a preliminary charge of Assisting a Criminal.
