ELKO — An Elko man was arrested on a bench warrant after failing to appear in court, resulting in a bail of $65,000.
James T. Corgan II, 29, was arrested at 950 Metzler Road at 3 p.m. Thursday.
According to Elko Police Capt. Will Lehmann, Corgan had three warrants dating back to March, all involving drug offenses.
It was unclear as to which warrant Corgan was arrested on.
“Based upon what I could find, if I had to guess, I would say that this warrant is an NDI case,” Lehmann said.
The Nevada Division of Investigation is the state’s drug task force.
The warrant included charges of trafficking a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance with two or more prior offenses, possession of a controlled substance, and conspiracy to violate the Uniform Controlled Substances Act, according to documents at the Elko Justice and Municipal Court.
Lehmann said Lt. Ty Trouten had assisted NDI with the case, but that the Elko Police Department was not in charge of the investigation.
After Corgan failed to appear at his court date on Oct. 9, a bench warrant was issued.
“That bail is so high due to his failure to appear in court,” Lehmann said.
