A Creston man who was wanted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation made an initial appearance in court Thursday a representative from the U.S. Attorney’s office told the Creston News Advertiser today.
According to court documents, Brandon Robert Fry, 32, who listed a previous address of 609 S. Maple St., was charged with first-degree burglary on March 30 and control of firearm or offensive weapon by a felon April 13.
Fry was released on bond awaiting trial scheduled for Sept. 9 on those charges, but his case was referred over to federal court Sept. 6.
According to Adams County Sheriff Alan Johannes, Fry was apprehended in a field in Adams County. A call was received by Adams County Sheriff’s dispatch to a report of an abandoned vehicle on the side of the road and a man walking through a field.
“He was turned over to the feds right away,” said Johannes.
Because of information provided by an informant, federal agents raided two residences in Creston Wednesday.
Just after 4 p.m. Wednesday, agents from the FBI raided a residence at 205 E. Mills St., in search of Fry. Earlier that day, agents also searched for Fry at a residence at 103 N. Stone St.
Additional details will be published as they are released.
