On Thursday, September 20th, 2018, at 8:51 p.m., the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office arrested Gage Puterbaugh (25) of Ruthven, on a valid Palo Alto County warrant for false report of an indictable offense to a public entity, which is a serious misdemeanor. Bond was set for $2,000.00 cash or surety. Puterbaugh was transported, without incident, to the Palo Alto County Jail. Puterbaugh was unable to post bond and was subsequently booked into the Palo Alto County Jail 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.
