Local Man Indicted For Role In Arrest Of Michigan Fugitive



Travis G. Beiswenger, 20, 400 Stamm Street, Apartment No. 2, has been indicted on a single count of obstructing justice in connection with the Oct. 28 arrest of James P. Nation.

The Fulton County Grand Jury handed down the indictment, Monday, Nov. 21.

Nation, 19, no address available, was a suspect in an Adrian, Mich., home invasion robbery. Acting on a tip, police went to Beiswenger’s apartment about 1 am. When Beiswenger answered the door, he denied Nation was in the apartment.

However, police officers said they could smell the odor of marijuana coming from the apartment, and advised Beiswenger they were going to enter. When they did, they discovered Nation, along with a 9mm semi-automatic handgun, body armor, and what may have been a hand grenade.

The indictment against Beiswenger states he “allegedly obstructed justice by communicating false information to another.”
