U.S. Marshals, sheriff’s warrant team make arrest


A Shawnee man was arrested by U.S. Marshals and members of the Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office Warrant Team on a $100,000 warrant.

Chad Pope, special deputy with the U.S. Marshals Service, said Travis Patrick Minx, 41, of Shawnee, was arrested late Monday in Shawnee for the felony warrant of plan/attempt/conspire to perform an act of violence.

Minix also is formally charged with that count in Pottawatomie County District Court.

Pope, who said Minix has no prior criminal background, said Minix allegedly sent a text message that included a photo of him holding a gun.
