Deborah M. Plunk
Deborah M. Plunk, 27, of North Platte, will do a year of probation after she was convicted Thursday of resisting arrest, carrying a concealed weapon and driving on a suspended license.
Plunk pled guilty in a plea deal with the Lincoln County Attorney. In exchange, charges of obstructing a peace officer, drug possession, assault, trespassing and possession of a weapon during a drug crime were dropped.
Plunk was arrested on Feb 8 along with James Foggs, Jeffery Denson and Kenneth Reed Jr. when a police officer on patrol noticed a pickup truck parked on a loading ramp inside the Nebraska Department of Roads yard near 13th and Buffalo Bill Ave.
Plunk was sentenced to a year probation for resisting arrest and carrying a concealed weapon. In a separate case, she pled guilty to driving under suspension and was sentenced to a year of probation, to run concurrent with the other probation.
When Plunk was arrested, Police Information Officer Rodney Brown said the suspects became belligerent and refused to follow orders. Officers saw the handle of a large kitchen knife sticking out of the back pocket of the driverís seat. Fogs and Denson were arrested without any trouble but Plunk and Reed resisted and had to be forcibly detained. During a search, drugs and a 9 mm handgun were also found, Brown said.
