Search Warrant Served Wednesday In Fairbury

FAIRBURY –  A search warrant Wednesday afternoon in Fairbury turned up several pieces of evidence in an ongoing investigation, but law enforcement was unable to make contact with the individuals staying there.

Jefferson County Law Enforcement served the search warrant at 1229 3rd Street in Fairbury in response to an ongoing investigation.    The case involves allegations that  37 year old Aaron Shemat of Fairbury pointed a firearm at several individuals and made threats toward them.   While searching the residence Jefferson County Law Enforcement found drug paraphernalia and firearms, which are believed to be evidence in the assault case that Shemat had been arrested for several days prior.

Shemat had since bonded out and his whereabouts are unknown at this time.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s department is also looking for  40 year old Jaime Deutsch of Fairbury as a person of interest in this case.

The matter remains under investigation at this time and further charges may be filed.
