Sioux Center, Iowa — A Sioux Center man is behind bars facing felony theft charges after authorities say he stole money from the Shell Sioux-per Center in Sioux Center.
According to court documents, 19-year-old Darian TeGrotenhuis is accused of entering the convenience store on Sioux Center’s north side at about 2:05 a.m. on Wednesday, October 3rd, approaching the counter, and stealing over $1600 in cash, over $1300 in checks, and $8.60 in coupons while the store clerk was outside the business. He was arrested the next day.
