On Wednesday, October 26, 2016, at 9:07 p.m., the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office arrested Thomas Moore (32), of Laurens, on a valid Palo Alto County warrant. The warrant stems from an original charge for possession of drug paraphernalia, which is a simple misdemeanor. Bail was set for $625.00 cash only. Moore was tranported to the Palo Alto County Jail, without incident. Moore was unable to post bail and was booked in to await his initial appearance before a magistrate.
A criminal charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
