On 05/17/2019 at 2:05 p.m. the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a suspicious male subject walking in the 4100 block of Highway 4. Upon investigation into the report contact was made with Arthur William Wolcott, 56, of Waterloo. A warrant check was requested on Wolcott. During the check it was discovered that Wolcott had a valid arrest warrant out of Clay County.
Subsequently the Palo Alto County Sheriff’s Office arrested Wolcott on a valid Clay County warrant for failure to appear on the original charge of Driving while Suspended, a simple misdemeanor. Wolcott was unable to post the $500.00 cash only bond. Wolcott was turned over to the Clay County Sheriff’s Office, 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.
