A North Platte man is facing multiple felony charges after Police say he sent a Facebook message to a female who he is prohibited from contacting.
At around 10:10 p.m. on Tuesday, North Platte Police received a complaint of a protection order violation from a 29-year-old female. The victim alleged that the suspect, Dylan Aufdengarten, had messaged her via Facebook.
The responding officer confirmed that there was an active Domestic Protection Order served on Aufdengarten, in which the victim was the protected party.
The Officer was able to locate Aufdengarten at a residence in the 2400 block of West 14th where he discovered that the owner of the home was not present, and also had a separate Protection Order in place against Aufdengarten.
Police placed Aufdengarten under arrest and charged him with two counts of felony Violation of a Domestic Protection Order. Additionally, Police learned Aufdengarten had just been released from a 10-day jail sentence earlier in the day, also for violating a protection order. Because of the previous conviction, he was charged with Stalking, also a felony.
Aufdengarten is being held at the Lincoln County Detention Center.
