COPPERAS COVE — A man remained in Coryell County Jail on Monday after city police arrested him on several Kansas and Missouri warrants. He is awaiting extradition to those states.

Justice of the Peace Bill Price arraigned Michael Paul Roy on Thursday on two charges of fugitive from justice. Price set one bond at $50,000 but left the other bail undetermined.

About 10:30 p.m. Friday, Copperas Cove police served the arrest warrants for Roy in the 700 block of North Third Street.

While police were serving the warrants, Roy allegedly supplied police with a Texas identification card that showed him to have the same date of birth as the man listed in the warrants, but they were under an alias, Benjamin Paul Roy.

The warrants out of the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office in Kansas included possession of marijuana with the intent to sell, possession of drug paraphernalia, no tax stamp and possession of marijuana, first offense.

Police also discovered two warrants from the St. Louis County Police Department in Missouri. Those warrants included two burglaries of the first degree and a possession of burglary tools charge.

Both warrants recommended that Roy be extradited.
