New Ulm Woman Faces Charges 20 Mar 14

A New Ulm woman is facing multiple charges for a recent incident at the New Ulm Wal-Mart. Officers had been investigating a theft at the store when they spotted 21-year-old Megan Sue Hoffmann and 23-year-old Xavier Lee Heeder, and knew they both had active warrants for their arrests.

She has been charged with fleeing a police officer and obstructing the legal process, and her bail is set at $150,000. She also faces burglary and theft of a motor vehicle charges for a previous incident. Heeder has also been charged with obstruction of the legal process and disorderly conduct, and his bail is also $150,000.
