(KNZA)--A Hiawatha man, wanted on a southeast Nebraska felony warrant, is now in custody after he was found hiding in a Hiawatha building early Sunday morning.

According to a release from Brown County Sheriff John Merchant, the arrest of 47-year-old Anthony Tull came after the Sheriff's Office was alerted that Tull, wanted on a Richardson County, Nebraska felony warrant for 1st degree assault, was in Hiawatha.

Deputies, shortly after 12:15 Sunday morning, tracked Tull to a vacant Hiawatha building where he was found "hiding on top of a small room in the building."

Merchant says after Tull was located, he was taken into custody without incident.

Now facing an additional charge for felony obstruction, Tull was booked into the Brown County Jail.
