A fugitive was apprehended in North Platte Thursday afternoon following a large law enforcement effort among Nebraska State Patrol, Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office and North Platte Police Department. NSP spokesperson Cody Thomas says they received information late Thursday morning on the whereabouts of Rosendo Duran. A Lincoln County arrest warrant had been issued for Duran after he left Great Plains Health in North Platte last Friday night before being officially released. Duran was located along the South Platte River with assistance from an NSP K9 and taken into custody without incident. The 28-year-old North Platte man was then booked into the Lincoln County Detention Center in North Platte.
Duran had been taken to the hospital after being arrested following a pursuit in North Platte that afternoon. His medical complaint was unrelated to the pursuit or arrest.
