An Antelope County man had time in court last Wednesday for a number of issues.
William Anson was arraigned on charges of Burglary, a class IIA felony, possession of burglar tools, a class IV felony and being a habitual criminal on December 6.
According to court documents, Anson is accused of a number of incidents occurring between November 30 and December 2. Sometime between November 30 and December 2, he allegedly stole a chainsaw, multiple chains, a chainsaw bar tool, a socket set and a generator and fuel from a property near Orchard.
Then, on December 2, officers were again called to the property after a man, later identified as Anson, in a white Ford Explorer Sport Track was seen on the property attempting to steal fuel from a fuel tank. When confronted by the family, Anson fled the property in his vehicle. A shot was fired into the back tire, forcing the vehicle to crash and causing him to flee on foot. Officers searched for the man throughout the night before he turned himself in on December 3 at the Antelope County Sheriff’s Office.
Bond was set by Judge Donna Taylor for $25,000 and a hearing date was set for December 27 at 9:30 a.m.
