Deputies Pick Up Blecha On Federal Warrant

FALLS CITY – The Richardson County Sheriff’s Office arrested 48-year-old Richard Blecha in Shubert on a federal warrant.

The warrant alleges that Blecha failed to report an address change in violation of his supervised release.

The federal courts say Blecha was convicted of attempted burglary in 1998, which was the basis of a 2011 charge of felony in possession of a firearm. He was sentenced to 48 months in prison and 36 months supervised release for possession of a 12-gauge shotgun.

A Dec. 11 hearing is set in federal court in Omaha regarding the alleged violation of his supervised release.

Court records say a woman at his Humboldt residence told probation that she had kicked him out and probation was not aware where he moved to.
