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.

    If everything this says is true, he is not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but I am always skeptical. Does she or someone trying to protect her know his password? Just asking the question there are some very vengeful people in this World.

      did you not see that they found him in a home he was not supposed to be in because the owner of the home also had a protection order against him ?

    Regardless of whether or not some vengeful person is out there, what the hell was he doing in the home of ANOTHER person who had a separate protection order. I doubt this is someone being vengeful.

    Throw him back in prison, its where this scandalous person needs to be.
