Mason County Deputies Find Wanted Man Hiding in Crawl Space

The Mason County Sheriff’s Office says they found a wanted man hiding in a crawl space before he ran a quarter mile to try and get away from deputies.

It happened on Glenn Lane in Sheridan Township Thursday afternoon.

Deputies say the man had four outstanding warrants out for his arrest.

When deputies approached the house, that’s when the suspect came out from under a crawl space.

A deputy grabbed him, but both ended up on the ground in a struggle.

The suspect was able to run away.

The sheriff’s office says he was arrested about a quarter mile away.

The man is now awaiting charges.

A woman in the house was also arrested for violating probation.

Deputies are seeking additional charges for harboring a fugitive.
