BEATRICE – Bond is set at $5,000 for a man arrested Thursday night by Beatrice Police, on pending warrants.
21-year-old Austin Meyn was arrested after Beatrice Police observed him walking with a group of people, and an officer knew of a pending bench warrant for theft by receiving stolen property and criminal mischief.
Meyn, who was arrested in the thirteen hundred block of Scott Street, also had an active warrant for distribution of a hazardous drug and two counts of possession of an illegal drug.
Beatrice Police said when they contacted Meyn, he allegedly gave a fictitious identity. Police also recovered suspected marijuana contained in a pharmaceutical bottle.
Meyn was arrested for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia and is also being held on charges contained in the warrants. He faces a hearing in Gage County Court, Thursday.
In a separate case last week, Beatrice Police arrested Damien Roland, who will be 38 on Tuesday. He was arrested for allegedly driving on a revoked license. Police stopped his vehicle in the seven hundred block of Bell Street, after responding to a report of a sport utility vehicle chasing someone. Officers observed the vehicle with no license plates or in-transit sticker.
Roland faces a court proceeding, April 17th. According to court records, he has a sex offender registry case pending in district court.
