FREETOWN, Mass. (WPRI) — Police are asking for the public’s help as they try to track down a man who has several warrants out for his arrest.
Brandon Demoranville, 37, of 122 Chace Road, was allegedly seen by police walking on the property of 92 Chace Road around 1:30 p.m.
A woman was found dead at that home on Wednesday and her live-in boyfriend was charged with the murder, but police said the search for Demoranville is “entirely unrelated” to that investigation.
After patrol officers spotted Demoranville on Friday, they ran a check and found he’s wanted on five active warrants. One, according to police, was due to him failing to appear in court on breaking-and-entering and larceny charges out of Freetown from October 2022.
Police set up a perimeter and called in mutual aid, including Massachusetts State Police Airwing and K-9 units, but they were unable to find Demoranville after several hours of searching.
Police said there is no perceived danger to the public at this time.
Anyone with information on Demoranville’s whereabouts is asked to call Freetown police at (508) 763-4017.
