A Kentucky man was sentenced to nearly 16 years in prison for a 2019 armed carjacking in Elizabethtown.

Joshua Logsdon, of Sonora, Kentucky, was sentenced to 190 months in prison without the possibility of parole.

In February 2919, Logsdon reportedly fled Elizabethtown Police officers who attempted to stop a vehicle  during a drug investigation with Greater Hardin County Narcotics Task Force

Logsdon, who was armed, went to a nearby residence and stole a vehicle by force. An ATF agent said Logsdon pointed his gun at the vehicle’s owner and fired at them as they tried to escape.

Logsdon then reportedly drove the stolen vehicle toward officers who responded to the scene, causing the officers to fire their weapons. Logsdon continued driving at a high speed, and officers from multiple agencies chased him until the vehicle crashed in a field in Sonora.

In October 2020, Logsdon pleaded guilty to carjacking, use and discharge of a firearm during a violent crime and being a felon is possession of a firearms in federal court.
