Jeremy Cook is in custody at Clark County Jail, and Joshua Cheatham was taken into custody earlier in the week.

Harrison County Sheriff's Department deputies, with assistance from the Clark and Floyd County Sheriff's departments, arrested Steven Springer III Thursday evening at an apartment complex in Clarksville.

Still at large is Gary Underwood, who is in his early-to-mid-20s and considered armed and dangerous, according to Harrison County Sheriff Rodney (Rod) Seelye.

Seelye and Harrison County Prosecutor J. Otto Schalk held a press conference Wednesday afternoon, Oct. 26, with the majority of the $15,000 to $20,000 worth of stolen items recovered earlier in the week.

Seelye said anyone who has been a victim of a theft can view the items to see if it belongs to them.

The thefts occurred in Harrison, Crawford, Washington and Floyd counties, Seelye said.

The sheriff said an investigation, with help from the Louisville Metro Police Department, led to surveillance of the suspects Sunday at InnTown Suites hotel along Preston Highway in Louisville. Officers eventually followed Cook, Springer and Underwood to Jeffersonville, where a brief chase ended in a vehicle crash. Springer fled on foot, while Cook and Underwood were taken into custody. Underwood bonded out shortly thereafter, and now U.S. Marshals are tracking Underwood, Schalk said. Cheatham was not in the vehicle.

"White supremacists are not welcome in Harrison County; it's not a place for burglars," Schalk said. "Once they're caught, when they're caught, we're going to prosecute them to the fullest."
