  • Law enforcement officers were busy with an incident Thursday morning and another one late in the afternoon as a suspect sought on an arrest warrant was found hiding under a house.
    Law enforcement officers surrounded 316 N. Philadelphia late Thursday afternoon in an attempt to serve an arrest warrant.
    Chad Pope, commander with the Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office warrant team, said warrant team members were watching that home to serve its resident with an arrest warrant on the felony of malicious injury to property. Earlier in the day, the home was padlocked from the outside, but surveillance going on all afternoon indicated a man matching the description of the person being sought returned home so authorities attempted to serve that warrant and made entry.
    Once inside, they discovered the front door was barricaded and found no one there. Officers checked the attic, but couldn’t find anything, Pope said, and then Deputy Bob Stewart looked underneath the house.
    At first it looked clear in the crawl space, he said, but then Stewart noticed part of a shoe and found the man “was suspended on a sewer pipe,” under the bathroom floor, Pope said.
    Do-Haan Tague Moon, 35, was taken into custody on the $5,000 warrant and booked into the Pottawatomie County Public Safety Center.
    Court records show Moon had received a suspended sentence on that charge but was not in compliance with requirements of that sentence.
    Earlier on Thursday in an unrelated incident, a flurry of activity occurred in a neighborhood near the Elks Lodge.
    Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Detective Ken VanDuser said dispatch received a call about 6:34 a.m. involving a domestic disturbance at 2 Springbrook.
    VanDuser said the complaint involved Brian M. Cranford, 29, allegedly having a verbal disturbance with his grandparents, with the grandmother reporting the incident.
    A Citizen Potawatomi Nation tribal officer and a deputy responded, with the CPN officer getting there first, he said. At that point, it was reported Cranford left and ran into the nearby woods, with that officer trying to track him down as deputies visited with the grandparents.
    A bit later, a neighbor called back after Cranford came out of the woods, with VanDuser reporting that Cranford allegedly threw a pair of suspenders at his grandfather, resulting in Cranford being arrested on a domestic assault and battery complaint. Formal charges have not been filed, but the incident, which was not classified as a manhunt, was over by 8:30 a.m.
    Cranford remained jailed in the Pottawatomie County Public Safety Center Thursday night.
