Dawn Herweh appeared before Lincoln County Judge Kent Turnbull for a contested hearing on two counts of burglary.

Herweh was arrested with two men June 20 when a stakeout caught them burglarizing a home on So. Buffalo Bill Ave., prosecutors said.

They were reportedly stealing guns.

"I have some good news and some bad news for you," Defense Attorney Kent Florom told Herweh when she appeared on a video screen from the jail.

“The good news is that the state will probably drop the burglary charges," Florom said. “The bad news is the charges will be dropped because the feds will be indicting you on federal gun charges.”

He advised Herweh to ask for a continuance and see if the federal charges materialize. She agreed. Turnbull granted the continuance and told her to return on July 24.

Her bond is set at $25,000.



Martin White, accused in the same burglary, got the same news from Defense Attorney Martin Troshynksi.

Troshynksi told his client that he expects the same federal indictments on gun charges will be coming White’s way.

White’s bond is $75,000.



Charges against the third suspect, Gregory Skinner, were bound over to district court on July 3.

Skinner is also charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Skinner simply waived his right to a preliminary hearing and his case was bound over to district court. His bond was reduced to $35,000.
