A Chillicothe man who had been sought in connection with burglaries and thefts in Grundy County was arrested Saturday.
46-year old Moses Miranda of Chillicothe was arrested Saturday at a friends house in northwest Livingston County.
Grundy county sheriff Rodney Herring said Miranda was hiding in a bedroom filled with what he described as a lot of junk.
Herring said the woman who resides there was cooperative, and that Miranda was there, allowing authorities to enter the house.
Authorities went to the house after first going to Miranda's mother's house on Route 190 in Livingston county. Herring said authorities had been given information that Miranda had been given a ride from Milan to his mothers house
Charges against Moses Miranda issued earlier this week include two counts of first degree burglary, one count of stealing a firearm, as well as one count of stealing property valued over 500 dollars. Bond on those charges was set at 20-thousand dollars cash. Sheriff herring said it's possible other Grundy County charges could be filed against Miranda who was being held at the Grundy county detention center.
Two other persons, 32-year old Carson Symmonds and 30 year old Stephanie Lyn Rodriquez, both of Chillicothe, were taken into custody Tuesday evening in a traffic stop near Highway 6 and Grundy County Route V. They each face two counts of conspiracy to commit first degree burglary and two counts of receiving stolen property.
Authorities reported a third person, believed to be Moses Miranda, ran from the sport utility vehicle on Tuesday
Members of the Grundy and Livingston county Sheriff offices, the Highway Patrol, and the Northwest Missouri inter-agency team response task force were involved in the arrest. A Missouri State Highway Patrol helicopter and a law enforcement dog were used Friday afternoon.
Grundy county Sheriff Rodney Herring said Miranda did not really resist arrest once he was found. However, Livingston County Sheriff Steve Cox said Miranda reportedly refused to comply with an officers repeated orders to surrender so he, as Sheriff Cox put it, was introduced to a taser, and then found his way into the arms of a state trooper and sheriff for handcuffing.
Cox said Miranda was accused in Livingston county of second degree burglary near Moorseville. Bond was 25-thousand dollars cash.
