According to Cherry County Attorney Eric Scott, a tip from the public following last week’s press release and pleas for the public’s assistance, has led to the arrest and apprehension of Jessica Otte, age 42, of Valentine.

After a tip was called in, the Lincoln Police Department was notified. Follow up on the informative tip led to Otte’s arrest in Lincoln, Lancaster County, Nebraska late Monday afternoon.

Otte, formerly of Valentine, has active Cherry County Warrants for both Theft and Issuing Bad Checks. She had been released on bond when she failed to appear at her July 24, 2017 court date. She is scheduled to appear in District Court on November 17, 2017.

The County Attorney thanks everyone for their assistance and cooperation leading to the arrest of Ms. Otte.
