February 3, 2019

A Paxton man was charged Thursday in Lincoln County Court after sheriff’s deputies said he stole a vehicle.

Ricky Frederick, 18, is charged with theft by unlawful taking, $5,000 or more; theft by unlawful taking, $1,500 to $5,000; and criminal mischief, $1,500 to $5,000.

His bail was set at $12,500 with a 10 percent option to be released from jail. Martin Troshynksi was appointed his lawyer. On Friday, Frederick was no longer listed on the Lincoln County Detention Center’s inmate roster online.

Frederick was arrested after a Sutherland resident spotted his pickup on the southwest side of the town. Frederick was found with several credit cards that the owner didn’t realize had been stolen, deputies said at the time.
