A Missouri woman was arrested Thursday in North Platte and her bond was set at $100,000, cash, in Lincoln County Court Tuesday. Rebecca Barr, 39, of St. Robert, Mo., fought police Thursday when they arrested her, according to court records.
Police stopped Barr in the 900 block of West Sixth at 3:45 p.m. Thursday and questioned her about an Oklahoma drug distribution warrant. First she gave them a fake name. She struggled with the officers, injuring one of them, and then she tried to run.
She was later cited for possession of methamphetamine too.
The Oklahoma warrant is for the distribution, manufacturing and possession of dangerous drugs.
In Lincoln County, she is charged with possession of methamphetamine, resisting arrest, assaulting an officer and false reporting.
When Barr appeared Tuesday in Lincoln County Court, Judge Michael Piccolo assigned her a public defender and set a surety bond of $100,000.
A surety bond means that she cannot be released by paying 10 percent. The full amount must be paid in cash.
Piccolo also added a $5,000 bond for assaulting an officer, so if Barr somehow comes up with the $100,000 she would have to pay another 10% of $5,000 to be released.
Piccolo made her bond a surety bond at the request of Oklahoma officials. Conditions of her extradition to Oklahoma have not yet been set.
This report was corrected March 21. The previous story erroneously said there were charges in another state.
