Warrant Arrest

On Thursday, January 11th, 2018, at 8:16 p.m., the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office arrested Joseph Whitney (47), of Emmetsburg, on a valid Emmet County warrant for contempt of court. The warrant stems from an original charge of operating a motor vehicle without registration, which is a simple misdemeanor. There was a $500.00 cash only bond set for the warrant. Whitney was unable to post the $500.00 bond and was subsequently transported to Emmet County and turned over to Emmet County Deputies.
