Possession of Alcohol

On Sunday, July 11, 2021, at 12:44 a.m., the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office was notified by staff at the Ruthven Street Dance of two underage individuals consuming alcohol. After investigation into the incident, the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office charged Alexander Long (19) of Ruthven, IA., and Treyton Cacek (19) of Ruthven, IA., for possession of alcohol under the legal age, a simple misdemeanor. Long and Cacek were issued citations to appear in court at a later date.

A criminal charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
