The Burned Pharaoh
Sheriff Royce Amundsen
Experienced Law Officer
The sheriff of Nowell County, Minnesota was born in Herot. While most men his age left town to find work, Amundsen chose to stay and work in the town where he was raised. He still lives in the house his grandfather built.
Amundsen is respected by most residents of Herot, and is thought to be a tough but fair law officer. He earned the 2nd place marksman’s ribbon at the 2009 Minnesota Law Enforcement Conference.
