According to facts read in court, Barnes took a car for a test drive on Oct. 1 from the Bill Summers north dealership at Rodeo Rd. and Jeffers. Barnes was apparently driving recklessly and lost control. He hit a guy wire on a pole, damaging the car.

Tyler-Barns returned to the dealership and said he would buy the car anyway. He drove off in the car to make arrangements with his bank but never came back. He also left false information with the dealership.

Police found him later with the car and arrested him for theft by deception and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle/joyriding.

Barnes has served a total of 96 days. He received credit for the time served and the extra six days will be credited against court costs.

Barnes was also ordered to pay Bill Summers Ford $1,000 in restitution -- the deductible on the insurance of the car.


Pot dealer serves nine days

Joseph Branco, 36, of Colorado, had his charge of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver amended in a plea deal to attempted possession of marijuana.

Branco pled guilty and waived his preliminary hearing. He was sentenced to nine days in jail and given credit for nine days served.

He was arrested April 28. Nine days later he paid the required 10 percent of a $25,000 bond and went back to Colorado.

Branco was driving erratically in a rented car on I-80, which got the attention of a Nebraska state trooper. He turned off at North Platte's main exit and pulled into the Oasis plaza. The trooper followed him and approached the car. The trooper said the odor of pot was evident. During a search, slightly less than one pound of pot was found in individual baggies in the car.
