Two wanted felons were arrested early Wednesday morning after a search warrant was served in Nevada, MO.

According to a press release from the Sheriff’s Office, Sheriff’s Deputies, Nevada Police and members of the recently formed Vernon County Special Response Team, served a search warrant at a residence on the 700 block of West Parkhill Drive around 5:30 am.

Sheriff Jason Mosher said his team was searching for Edward Hallam, 33 of Nevada, and had reason to believe the wanted felon was in the residence.  “Hallam had numerous warrants including resisting arrest so we sent the Special Response Team to get him” Mosher said.

The Sheriff said the team found Hallam hiding in the attic and had to go up and get him after he refused to come down.

The Sheriff also said Necole L Brown, 28 of Milo was arrested on a felony warrant of Stealing Leased or Rented Property as well as other misdemeanor warrants.

Hallam and Brown were transported to the county jail. Deputies and Nevada Police found drugs in the residence but would not disclose any details pending the continuing investigation.

Sheriff Mosher said the priority on this warrant was for the safety of other people residing in the residence, “The warrant was executed in a safe manner even though the suspect resisted, so our team did an excellent job.”
