With aid from bystander, police capture wanted 37-year-old Freetown man, held without bail



FREETOWN, MA – A local man wanted by police has been captured.

According to Lieutenant Benjamin Levesque, on Sunday, at approximately 9:00 a.m., the Freetown Communications Center received multiple 9-1-1 calls reporting the sighting of 37-year-old Brandon Demoranville of Chace Road in East Freetown. The callers reported that Demoranville was inside the Mobil Mart convenience store on Mason Road.

Freetown Police were dispatched and successfully located Demoranville inside a parked vehicle with his mother and girlfriend. He was taken into custody without incident and subsequently transported to the Freetown Police Station for booking.

This arrest comes in the wake of Demoranville’s evasion of law enforcement two days ago, which sparked a lengthy police search. Demoranville was the subject of several outstanding warrants, one of which dated back to October 2022 when Freetown Police initially arrested him on charges alleging felony breaking-and-entering and larceny.

Following his arrest, Demoranville was transported to the Bristol County House of Corrections, where he will be held without bail. His court appearance is scheduled for Monday at the Fall River District Court.

Freetown Police Chief Scott Rose praised the cooperation of community members, whose assistance led to the swift apprehension of Demoranville.
