(Lawrenceburg, IN) – Three people were arrested this week in connection with a road rage incident involving shots fired earlier this month on U.S. 50 in Dearborn County.

It was on August 7 when Lawrenceburg and Greendale police responded to a report of gunshots involving two vehicles traveling on 50.

The driver of a gray Toyota Camry was identified and cooperated with police, who went looking for a second driver in a gray 2006 Ford Focus.

Dearborn County Prosecutor Lynn Deddens says a car matching the description of the suspect vehicle was found abandoned by an Indiana Department of Natural Resources park ranger in a remote area of Versailles State Park.

While serving a search warrant, investigators said they found evidence the car was involved in the shooting and determined it was registered to Anthony Boyer.

Deddens says investigators also determined Boyer’s roommate Joshua Orrantia was the driver of the Focus at the time of the incident, and that Orrantia had been involved in recent gunshots and firearms incidents in Versailles.

Authorities also believe Orrantia had been in a relationship with Ashley Raymer, who also lived in Tanglewood Apartments in Versailles, and that she helped Orrantia dump the Ford Focus in Versailles State Park.

Officers from the Lawrenceburg and Versailles police departments, Ripley County Sheriff’s deputies, and Indiana State Police troopers arrested Boyer and Raymer Tuesday morning at the apartment complex.

Orrantia was arrested later following a brief foot pursuit in Jefferson County.

Boyer, Orrantia, and Raymer were charged with Possession of a Firearm by a Serious Violent Felon (Level 4 felony), Criminal Recklessness with a Deadly Weapon, Pointing a Firearm, Obstruction of Justice, and Assisting a Criminal (all Level 6 felonies.)

All three are being held in the Dearborn County Law Enforcement Center.
