Arrest Made at Eldorado Compound

ELDORADO, TEXAS (AP) - State Troopers have arrested one person during their search of a compound built by polygamist leader Warren Jeffs.  

Department of Public Safety Spokesman Tom Vinger said the person arrested was not Dale Barlow, the man listed in warrants related to the marriage of an underage girl. But Vinger said he had no other details. 

Authorities raided a 1,700-acre polygamist compound in Eldorado run by the fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. They had a tip that a girl was being abused.  While authorities say church members have been cooperative, there have been tense moments as troopers have searched the temple and other buildings on the grounds.
