On 4/29/2018 at 12:42 a.m. the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle in the 3400 block of 360th Street near Ruthven. Upon investigation into the traffic stop, the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office arrested Samie Jean Royster (35) of Ruthven for two valid Palo Alto County Warrants. One of the arrest warrants was for failure to appear on an original charge of driving while suspended which carried a $500 cash only bond. The second arrest warrant was for original charges of theft in the second degree, criminal mischief in the 4th degree, and conspiracy to commit a non-forcible felony which carried a $5000 cash only bond. Royster was transported to the Palo Alto County Jail, without incident.
A criminal charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
