Kirkendall Bound Over On Theft Charges

FALLS CITY – Richardson County Judge Curtis Maschman bound Travis Kirkendall over to district court Wednesday to stand trial on charges including burglary and willful reckless driving.

Charges of resisting arrest and criminal trespassing were dismissed, but Kirkendall will face a felony burglary charge.

Police officers James Wason and Zachary Ractliffe testified at preliminary hearing regarding a break-in at Harmon’s OK Tire Store.

Police Officer Zachary Ractliffe was called to testify at preliminary hearing on allegations that the 43-year-old Kirkendall drove 50 mph in a Falls City residential area, violated stops signs and went through the city park on Aug. 12.

Prosecutors say he was driving an Econoline van that had been stolen from Bellevue.

Bond was continued with a $5,000 provision. The judge ordered Kirkendall to appear in court Oct. 23 for arraignment in district court.

Kirkendall is also scheduled to appear in county court on Oct. 15 on a charge of resisting arrest on Oct. 2 at his Harlan Street residence.
