LEBANON, Missouri- Lebanon police say they found a man wanted for warrants just before noon Saturday after being called to a residence for a break-in investigation.
The officer said he was called to 400 block of Railroad at a residence he knew was the home of a 28 year-old man from Lebanon who has several warrants out for his arrest including one out of Laclede County.
When the officer arrived he said several people came to the door and told them he was there about a reported break-in. The guests said they had permission to be at the home and consented to a search. The officer said he found drug paraphernalia while looking through the house and also saw a large pile of clothing on the floor. “While looking through the clothes I located the wanted male suspect hiding in the clothes. I advised suspect he was under arrest for the outstanding warrant and secured him in handcuffs,” the officer said in the report.
The man would not answer questions about the marijuana pipe that was found, the officer said. The paraphernalia allegedly had burnt marijuana in it according to the officer. The officer said police dispatch advised him that the Laclede County warrant had been recalled and the other warrants are non-extraditable. He issued suspect a summons for the drug paraphernalia and took a photo of the man. The suspect was then released and told the officer that the house guests had permission to be at the residence.
