Bo Carrier, Larimore, charged with flooding cell at Ward County Jail, damaging sheriff’s office

Bo Dick Carrier, 29, Larimore, is charged in district court in Ward County with Class B felony criminal mischief for breaking a sprinkler head in his cell, flooding the ceiling in the cell and causing water to enter the interior walls within the jail and in the sheriff’s office on Tuesday afternoon. Carrier allegedly did this because he was unhappy about some policies at the jail.

According to a probable cause affidavit filed with the court by Ward County Deputy Taylor Schiller, a significant amount of water leaked into four offices within the sheriff’s department, which is located directly below the jail. The water from Carrier’s cell leaked along the walls, ceiling, and caused the carpet to get saturated with water. The flood meant several deputies had to move desks, computers and filing cabinets so there wouldn’t be any further damage done.

The estimated amount of damage exceeds $10,000, according to the affidavit.

Carrier was being held at the jail on a charge of escape from the Walsh County Jail in Grafton. He was also charged in Walsh County on May 28 with two counts of Class C felony assault on a peace officer, Class C felony terrorizing, Class C felony criminal trespass, Class A misdemeanor conspiracy to commit unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, and Class B misdemeanor theft of property.
