Jeremy Lynd, suspected of using a stun gun on a retired sheriff’s deputy who in turn opened fire on the would-be bandit at a River Park ATM in Fresno, has been captured in Sacramento.
Lynd, 30, was wanted in connection with the attempted robbery Friday.
Around 5 a.m. Friday outside the Educational Employees Credit Union machine, Lynd shocked the victim with a stun gun and demanded money. The victim, who police would not identify other than confirming he is a retired Fresno County sheriff’s deputy, then fired at Lynd and a woman in a getaway car.
The woman, Bobbie-Sue Alexandra Nicole Sevier, 31, was hit in the leg with a shot and was arrested, but Lynd fled the scene.

The U.S. Marshal’s Service arrested Lynd late Friday night at his girlfriend’s house in the Elk Grove area of Sacramento.
Deputy U.S. Marshal Frank Newsom said Monday that Lynd was in the Sacramento County Jail. Lynd was arrested on an outstanding federal probation warrant.
“He was arrested without incident. He gave himself up to us,” Newsom said.
Lynd is connected to a string of crimes in the Sacramento area, including armed robbery.
Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said as soon as the incident occurred in Fresno, officials reached out to Sacramento law enforcement because of Lynd’s record there.
“There was communication between our agencies and also with our local marshal’s office,” Dyer said. “If we want somebody located, we use our tactical team and our marshals because they have the ability to network throughout the United States.”
Dyer said whether Lynd will be transferred to Fresno will be decided by the Fresno County District Attorney’s Office and that multiple jurisdictions have to prosecute him.
