Fort Dodge Police arrested a man in Fort Dodge on Tuesday in connection with a warrant.
Around 12:50pm, Officer Keaton Lunn of the Fort Dodge Police Department observed Kalen Kuske Crandall, 24, in front of his house, while on routine patrol. Lunn believed Crandall was wanted on outstanding warrants for Violation of Probation (original charge, burglary, 3rd degree) and theft, 3rd degree through Webster County.
Lunn had checked Crandall’s location on other occasions to attempt to serve outstanding warrants.
Lunn observed Crandall as he entered his residence. Lunn approached the house and spoke with Dennis Crandal, 50, Father of Kalen Kuske Crandall. D. Crandall refused to let Lunn enter the residence to search for K. Crandall.
Shortly after confirming warrants for K. Crandall, Lunn called other officers to the scene to assist in the apprehension of K. Crandall.
According to a press release, D. Crandall continued to refuse the officers access to search the residence, and was taken into custody for failing to comply. Shortly after, officers of the Fort Dodge Police Department and the Webster County Sheriff’s Department entered the residence to apprehend K. Crandall, where he was found hiding in the attic.

Crandall was taken into custody a short time later and was charged with interference with official acts as well as the outstanding warrants.
While attempting to take Crandall into custody, Nancy Kuske, 55, of 813 South 18th Street, came to the residence and ignored officers repeated requests to leave the residence. N. Kuske was then taken into custody and charged with accessory after the fact and interference with official acts. Dennis Crandall was also charged with accessory after the fact and interference with official acts.
