Bench Warrant Issued For Brandon Pederson In Burglary Case
Law enforcement is looking for a Bar Nunn man accused of being involved in an auto burglary last year, because he didn't show up to court.
A bench warrant has been issued for Brandon Pederson who has pleaded not guilty to one charge of burglary.
He was scheduled to appear in Natrona County District Court on Friday, February 5th, for a plea change hearing, but never showed up.
Investigators with the Natrona County Sheriff's Office say in March 2015, there was an investigation of 14 separate automobile burglaries in the Bar Nunn area.

A sheriff’s investigator contacted a local business that sold and bought the playing cards.
The business owner told the investigator that Joshua Bland came into his store to sell some of the cards, some of which were rare and expensive.
The burglary victim was able to confirm the authenticity of the stolen cards.
When Bland was contacted at his residence by investigators, it was determined that Pederson was living at the same place, and he admitted that he had a role in some of the auto burglaries.
Pederson is free on $4,000 bond and a bond forfeiture order has been made because the bench warrant.
Meanwhile Bland has pleaded guilty to his role in the case, and is waiting to be sentenced.
