Over the weekend state game wardens were assisting local officials in the search for a felony suspect.  Authorities were trying to serve a warrant on 36 year old Cody Alan Wharton Friday when he ran into a wooded area near Maud.  Wharton has a history of hunting violations which led to having his Texas hunting license revoked. His most recent felony charges came in connection with allegedly hunting deer a couple of years ago on private property near what is now Church on the Rock.
