Warrant Arrest

At 12:25 a.m. on January 11, 2019, the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office arrested Jacob Hunefeld (29) of Emmetsburg on a valid Palo Alto County Warrant. The warrant was issued for Hunefeld on an original charge of Theft in the 5th Degree, a simple misdemeanor. Hunefeld was unable to post the $500 cash bond and was placed in the Palo Alto County Jail until his initial appearance in front of a judge.

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