Around 11:30 a.m. Friday, deputies received a report that a 4- or 5-year-old boy was walking around downtown Brady unsupervised.

The boy was apparently looking for his mother, according to the caller.

Concerned residents kept the boy safe until deputies arrived. According to the sheriff’s report, when deputies got there they took the boy home, but no one was there.

Eventually his mother, Fredrica D. Keffer, 36, was contacted, and she said she had to go to a meeting and could not find a babysitter, so she left the child at home, unsupervised. Keffer was charged with child abuse, and the boy was placed in the care of Health and Human Services.


Wreck near Wallace

Around 9:40 p.m. Friday, deputies were called to mile marker 44 on Nebraska Highway 23, west of Wallace near the Perkins County line.

A vehicle rolled and the driver was injured, the caller said. 

Wallace rescue workers found the driver and took him by ambulance to Great Plains Health in North Platte. The driver was identified as Moises Salgado Gomez, 32, of Wallace.

His injuries were not life threatening, the sheriff's office said.

Investigators said Gomez was traveling west on Highway 23 when his vehicle drifted off the north side of the road. Gomez apparently overcorrected, went into the south ditch and rolled.

Deputies did not believe Gomez was wearing a seatbelt, and alcohol appears to be a factor. Charges may follow, depending on the outcome of blood tests, the sheriff's report said.


Disturbance leads to arrest

On Sunday, deputies responded to a disturbance on N. Walnut in Sutherland. While investigating, they met with Scott Trueblood, 28, of North Platte.

Trueblood was intoxicated and generally uncooperative, according to a sheriff’s statement.

Deputies saw that he had a knife and took it from him for safety reasons. Trueblood was angered when the knife was taken, and he allegedly went after a deputy, threatening him.

Trueblood was charged with obstructing a police officer, a misdemeanor. A search also produced some drug paraphernalia, for which he was also cited and he was taken to the Lincoln County jail.
