On Saturday March 18, 2017 at approximately 11:03 pm, the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office received a complaint of a possible under age party at 110 N. Third St in Mallard. An investigation into the complaint was conducted and following the investigation, four subjects were cited and released on charges of possession of alcohol under the legal age. The subjects were: Macaela Morgan King (18) of Emmetsburg; Nicholas Donald Kollasch (20) of Emmetsburg; Dylan Anthony Richards (19) of Galva; and Tori Marie Lillard (20) of Cumberland. There was also one minor there under 18 that was not found to be in possession of alcohol.
A criminal charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
