Warrant issued for Kody Huff’s arrest
The Nebraska State Patrol is seeking help from the public in locating Kody Huff, 30, a former resident of Chase County.
On Monday, a warrant for Huff’s arrest was issued in Chase County on the following charges: second degree assault, terroristic threats, use of a weapon to commit a felony and possession of a weapon by a prohibited person.
Chase County Sheriff Kevin Mueller said he was contacted by the McCook Police Department June 10, after officers there had been called to the hospital where a subject claimed he suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his leg the day before.
The unidentified male, who reportedly said he was from Stratton, mentioned to officers he thought it happened near Wauneta, the reason the call was made to Chase County, Sheriff Mueller said.
However, details on the location were sketchy and McCook officers said the man was being uncooperative, the sheriff added.
In addition, due to his injuries, he was being transferred to North Platte. At that point, Mueller said he asked the McCook officers to contact the State Patrol, which took over the case.
Last Friday, Mueller said he was contacted by a State Patrol investigator in North Platte they had a suspect in the alleged shooting, and the warrant was then issued through Chase County.
No other details on the warrant were available. The Patrol’s investigation is continuing.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Huff is asked to call the NSP tip line at 308-535-8137.
Mueller said there are also warrants issued for Huff in Kansas.
As of Wednesday morning, Sheriff Mueller said Huff has not been located.
