Kyle Veirs, 26, was caught Tuesday and charged with stealing a bottle of booze and a pair of boots from Wal-Mart.

The total value was around $80 for the chronic offender. No one seems to be able to help Veirs get his life straightened out. This is his seventh arrest this year. He had been out of jail one day.

Veirs has been arrested 14 times since November 2011.

A Wal-Mart employee reported the theft around 5:30 p.m., police spokesman Rodney Brown said.

The employee said the man left on foot. With help from an off-duty officer, police found Veirs not far away, near the South River Bridge.

The charge is a felony due to prior convictions, and it carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.


It took police nearly two weeks to catch up with a man who allegedly drove off with $66 worth of gasoline, but they caught him and now he faces a felony rap.

The gas drive-off that occurred around 4:30 a.m. July 24 at Casey’s General Store at Rodeo Road and Buffalo. Two suspects were reportedly in the vehicle. One of them, Jim Bob Cassell, 34, was arrested on July 29. Police found Cassell has two outstanding warrants.

The other man, William Theus, was arrested on Monday after the investigation showed probable cause that Theus was the other suspect involved in the incident.

Theus is not getting off lightly for the alleged theft. He is charged with a felony because of his prior record.

He served 172 days in jail a year ago for aggravated assault. He and his brother Calvin were accused of beating a North Platte couple. The charges were increased after medical reports said the victims, ages 44 and 53, suffered serious bodily injury. Theus was convicted of a misdemeanor.
