Police arrested a fugitive Tuesday night and put him back in jail.Around 8:15 p.m. Tuesday, a North Platte police officer on patrol observed Roman Reyes driving a gray GMC Yukon near the 300 block of West B.
The officer knew that Reyes, 29, was wanted in Lincoln County for attempt of a Class 3A/4 felony as well as child abuse, police spokesman Rodney Brown said.
An investigative stop was conducted and Reyes was arrested.
When Reyes was searched, police found a glass pipe and a small baggie containing suspected meth residue. And, inside the Yukon, officers found more baggies with trace amounts of suspected methamphetamine, 3 concealed knives, burglary tools and car audio equipment that was suspected to be stolen. Brown said.
Reyes was charged with possession of a controlled substance (meth), possession of burglary tools and carrying concealed weapons.
Two of his passengers -- Laura Barnes, 33, and Robyn Jones, 22 -- were found to have warrants and were also jailed. Brown said Barnes was also cited for possession of marijuana, after a small amount was found on her when she was searched at the jail.
Reyes was charged with domestic assault, meth possession and child abuse on March 8. He paid the required 10% of a $10,000 bond the next day, but failed to appear back in court, according to court records.
This time, he is held on bonds that total $65,000.
