Four felony charges filed in Monday escape attempt

Posted

A 19-year-old Belle man is jailed in Osage County, charged Tuesday with four felonies following his escape south of Bland from a sheriff’s deputy investigating his alleged involvement in a motor-vehicle crash early Monday in Rosebud.

Noah Alonzo Cantlon, whose prior felony court cases list a post office box in Belle as his address, is believed to be homeless, according to Gasconade County Sheriff Scott Eiler.

Rosebud Police Chief Mason Griffith discovered a car abandoned in a yard in the eastern Gasconade County community after returning from a police shift in Hermann. While attempting to locate its owner, sheriff’s deputies went to a residence in the 1000 block of Route C, south of Bland, near Holt Road in the southwestern portion of the county.

When law enforcement arrived, the home’s occupant ran out, telling the deputy Cantlon was inside causing a disturbance, according to Sheriff Scott Eiler. Cantlon had apparently taken and wrecked her car sometime before 3 a.m. Monday in Rosebud and had later than morning entered her home without authorization.

Eiler said Cantlon was known to the woman.

Cantlon, found hiding in a bedroom, was threatened with being tasered before surrendering.

Placed under arrest in handcuffs and placed in the deputy’s patrol car, he “slipped the cuffs and kicked out the side, back seat passenger window,” according to Eiler.

There was a “scuffle” with the deputy, who took Cantlon to the ground, but Cantlon fled on foot.

A K-9 unit from Maries County Sheriff’s Department and a drone from the Osage sheriff’s patrol were called on to assist in the search which included Rosebud and Owensville policemen. 

A 911 tip led deputies to a residence on Holt Road where Cantlon was captured without incident.

An arrest warrant was issued Tuesday charging Cantlon with first-degree burglary, fourth-degree domestic assault, escape from custody while under arrest for a felony, and second-degree property damage. His bond was set at $35,000.

Eiler said the incident took place between around 5 and 10:35 a.m. March 15 from the time his deputy first went to the residence off of Route C to when Cantlon was recaptured.

“I want to thank Maries County Sheriff’s Office, Osage County Sheriff’s Office, and the citizens for their assistance in apprehending Cantlon,” said Eiler in a press release issued late Tuesday about the incident.
