A home-security system helped the Columbus Police Department arrest a wanted man Thursday.
Scott E. Bryant, 49, 251 N. Hughes St., was wanted on a Bartholomew County warrant for body attachment for failing to pay rent. When a home alarm sounded at 7 p.m. in the 3300 block of Dearfield Drive, police responded and found Bryant alone in the home.
Bryant told CPD officers he was a house guest, and after contacting the homeowner, police confirmed that he was indeed welcome. But the CPD discovered Bryant had a warrant.
After arresting Bryant, police searched him and found drug paraphernalia and a small amount of marijuana.
Bryant now faces misdemeanor charges of possession of paraphernalia and possession of marijuana.
