I had one hitch a ride in long time ago. Kept hearing it & finally one evening I saw a flash of movement on a piece of live rock so I reached in and yanked that rock out, smashed it with a hammer & caught the mantis shrimp. Took me like three months to get a visual on which rock he was in. You can buy a trap & go that route if you can't find where it is then hopefully you can trap it.

Not if you can hear it from outside the tank, also Cleaners don't have "claws"

I'd be willing to bet it's just a rock boring crab. Much more common than mantis shrimp in rock from Fiji/Indo areas.

Yes. They can be pretty loud. You can hear them from across the room. I wouldn't even worry about catching it to be honest. If you aren't seeing things being killed, it's just another cool sea creature in your tank.
It will get large enough to see plainly down the road.
