2 arrested in Kyle on ‘bootlegging,’ child endangerment charges

KYLE, S.D. – Tribal officers arrested two people on “bootlegging” and child endangerment charges.

Following up on a tip, officers searched a residence in the Kyle Village area Thursday. They confiscated a large amount of alcohol and cash, charging two people with the distribution of alcohol and child endangerment.

Officers believed the home was a regular distribution center, as they noticed empty boxes of the same type of alcohol throughout the residence.

Three children at the home were released to the custody of relatives.

The Oglala Sioux Tribe Department of Public Safety thanks the public for their help in the continuing fight against illegal sales and possession of alcohol and drugs.
