Orange City Man Arrested After Car Thefts
Date posted - May 2, 2016
Le Mars, Iowa — An Orange City man was arrested after authorities say he took two different cars.
On Saturday, April 30th, at 4:30 pm the Plymouth County Sheriff’s Office reports that they arrested 25-year-old Geoffrey Dean Oolman of Orange City on charges of operating a motor vehicle without owners consent and driving while license barred.
At approximately 2 PM, the Plymouth County Sheriff’s Office was called to a home in Merrill for a report of a vehicle theft. The caller also stated that another vehicle was abandoned in their driveway. Upon investigation, deputies believe the vehicle abandoned in the driveway was stolen out of Sioux City earlier that afternoon. That vehicle was released to the owner from Sioux City.
The vehicle from Merrill was entered as stolen. A short time later, the vehicle was located by the Orange City Police Department at 105 St. Paul Avenue in Orange City. Deputies from the Plymouth and Sioux County Sheriff’s Office and the Orange City Police Department went to the home and arrested Oolman. He was transported to the Plymouth County Jail and booked in on the charges of operating a motor vehicle without owners consent, and driving while license barred. Both charges are aggravated misdemeanors. Bond was set at $2,000.
The Plymouth County Sheriff’s Office says the Sioux City Police Department will likely be filing charges for the incident that occurred in Sioux City.
