Sioux Center, Iowa — Sioux County authorities are investigating a theft that was reported around 9:30 Tuesday morning (January 9th).
According to authorities the theft took place Monday (January 8th), when two people came to the victim’s residence northeast of Sioux Center, to purchase a cattle trailer.
Deputies say one of the suspects identified himself as “Dick Wolfs” of Logan, Iowa, and gave the victim a check for $6-thousand and took the trailer.
According to authorities, it was later found that the check was counterfeit, and the name “Dick Wolfs” is a bogus name.
Deputies say the suspects were driving a black, or dark blue, Dodge pickup with dual rear wheels and no license plates.
The trailer is a Hillsboro brand aluminum 24-foot cattle trailer with blue pin stripes on the side, and a large scratch and dent on the right.
If you have seen the pickup or trailer you’re asked to contact the Sioux County Sheriff’s Office at 712-737-2280.
