A Hannibal man wanted for parole violation faces additional charges following his arrest Monday afternoon.
Hannibal Police report that officers assigned to the Anti-Crime Enforcement Squad observed 39 year old Paul Sultzman sitting in a vehicle in the 2100 block of Gordon about 3 p.m. Monday.
Sultzman had an outstanding Missouri felony parole warrant and a felony warrant from Illinois.
Officers knew that Sultzman would try to flee the scene, so they deployed in areas to make it difficult for him to get away.
