(KNZA)--A Hiawatha search for a felon wanted on "multiple Brown County Warrants" led to both his arrest and to a search of a residence that led to additional charges for 38-year-old Derek Frakes.

According to a release from Brown County Sheriff John Merchant, deputies, on May 13, went to a Hiawatha residence in their search for Frakes, who was, after deputies were granted access, located inside and arrested.

During the search for Frakes, Merchant says "deputies gathered information...which led to the approval of a search warrant at the 711 Iowa residence" where the "Brown County Sheriff's Office Drug Task Force initiated the warrant."

Once the search was completed, Merchant says Frakes, of Hiawatha, was arrested for possession of meth, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Those charges come in connection with those previously faced by Frakes, including Brown County Felony Probation Violation Warrants of $500 and $10,000; a Brown County Felony failure to appear warrant of $25,000; and two Platte County, Missouri Felony Warrants, one for possession of marijuana and the second for distribution or possession of drug paraphernalia for illegal use.

Following his arrest, Frakes was booked into the Brown County Jail.
