Court costs, restitution claims lead to arrest of Perry man

Ramiro Rodriguez, 52, of Perry was arrested early Sunday on a warrant for probation violation.

A Perry man was arrested early Sunday in connection with a bad check he cashed at Christmastime in 2015.

Ramiro Rodriguez, 52, of Perry was arrested on a Dallas County warrant for probation violation in connection with a 2016 conviction for second-degree theft.

According to a criminal complaint filed in 2016 by the Perry Police Department, Rodriguez cashed a check Dec. 22, 2015, at the El Ray Meat Market for $1,450.25 that “he knew to be no good.” A local bank previously rejected the same check, the complaint claimed.

According to court records, Rodriguez currently owes $1,375.25 in victim restitution and $1,563.50 in court-appointed attorney fees, court costs, civil penalties, fines and surcharges ordered by the court.

Rodriguez is held in the Dallas County Jail on a $5,000 cash or surety bond. He is scheduled to make an initial appearance in Dallas County District Court Sunday morning.

*A criminal charge is merely an accusation, and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
