Former Norfolk Man In Custody in Arkansas on Felony Warrants out of Stanton and Madison County

Kentrell Monroe, 31, formerly of Norfolk will hopefully meet justice this time around after he was recently arrested in a small rural town in White County, Arkansas. Monroe has been on the lam since early 2020 after he failed to show up for sentencing in Stanton County District Court on a felony Possession of Controlled Substance charge and forfeited his $10,000 cash bond. He was originally arrested in January 2019 in Woodland Park by the Stanton County Sheriff’s office when a search warrant was served at a residence and he was found in possession of more than 1500 ecstasy pills hidden behind a wall vent. He also failed to appear in Madison County on a felony drug charge and fled the area. Fully extraditable warrants were issued for his arrest and a short time later he was arrested in Arizona and a hold was placed on him. However, Arizona officials allowed him to post a cash bond of several thousand dollars and he again fled failing to show back up for an extradition hearing in the Arizona court as required. Within a few weeks he was again arrested in Texas and holds were again placed on him. For unknown reasons, Texas authorities allowed him to post a 10,000 cash bond and he again fled. Last week he was stopped for speeding in Arkansas and found to be wanted on a “No Bond” Stanton County Arrest Warrant and was again taken into custody. Holds have again been placed on Monroe awaiting extradition back to Nebraska after he deals with Arkansas charges that he was allegedly in possession of nearly 40 pounds of methamphetamine when he was stopped for speeding. Based on this new arrest, it is unlikely that Monroe will be released without facing his judgment in court.
