Man arrested with outstanding warrants held without bond

Magistrate Harlan Dyrud wasn't taking any chances on a Grand Forks man arrested on 11 warrants, which included charges of bail jumping and failing to appear in court.

Magistrate Harlan Dyrud wasn't taking any chances on a Grand Forks man arrested on 11 warrants, which included charges of bail jumping and failing to appear in court.

"No bail. Body only," Dyrud pronounced Monday at Shaun Rogers' court appearance.

Dyrud did not set bail, requiring the 21-year-old to remain in jail until his next court date in September.

Rogers appeared via interactive television.

"Can you see me?" Dyrud asked as he held up a thick stack of case files. "Do you see what I have here in my hand?"

"Yes, your Honor," Rogers said from the Grand Forks County jail.

"Do you know what they are?"

"Yes, your Honor."

Dyrud was trying to send a message to Rogers, who was arrested Sunday on 10 warrants from Grand Forks County and one from Walsh County. The warrants included charges for bail jumping, theft, forgery and failing to appear in court.

Sunday, Rogers was spotted near Applebee's, 2851 S. Columbia Road, by two off-duty deputies from the Grand Forks Sheriff's Office. Because Rogers was in the city, Grand Forks officers responded. Officers chased him into Wal-Mart, and after a brief search, he was found in the restroom and arrested.

Rogers faced most of his outstanding warrants in court Monday, plus a new charge of fleeing a police officer.
