Missouri Fugitive Arrested, East of Beatrice

BEATRICE – A call reporting a strange man inside a rural home, eventually led Gage County Sheriff’s Deputies to a man wanted in Missouri.

Saturday afternoon, a deputy received a call from a man who lives along East Hoyt Road, east of Beatrice, who discovered an unknown man inside his residence.

When the owner asked him to leave, the man complied.  Two deputies responding to the scene, observed a male walking along the east side of Hoyt Road, near the Beatrice city limit.   When officers stopped to contact the man, he fled on foot, running south into a wooded area along a creek.

A deputy drove his patrol unit across a corn field and located the man hiding near a creek bank, about an eighth-of-a-mile from the road.

Authorities arrested 41-year-old Isaac Anderson on suspicion of obstructing police.  A records check indicated there were four warrants for Anderson, from Jasper County in the State of Missouri.  That is the Joplin area in the southwest part of the state.

A Gage County Court appearance bond has been set at $10,000, with Anderson scheduled to appear in court, Thursday.
