According to Hawarden Police Chief Mike De Bruin, their officers arrested 30-year-old Jeremy James Langley on Monday. He reports that the incident actually started when officers went to Langley’s brother Jim Richard — or “JR”‘s house on a possession of weapons by a felon call. He says officers knew that Jeremy Langley was wanted on several warrants when they found him hiding in a field behind his brother’s house.

Chief De Bruin says Jeremy Langley was in possession of methamphetamine, a large amount of marijuana and seven pieces of drug paraphernalia. He says officers also found several money bags in his possession. He says officers think this may be money stolen in the burglary of a Sioux Falls casino. He says Sioux Falls Police officers are working on that possibility.

He says that Langley also didn’t cooperate with officers and as he was being put into the squad car, bolted from officers and had to be apprehended again.

Langley was charged with seven counts of Failure to Appear in seven prior cases, Possession of Methamphetamine with Intent to Deliver, a class “C” felony; Delivery of Marijuana; Failure to Have an Iowa Drug Tax Stamp; Second Degree Theft for possession of stolen property valued at over $1000, and Escape From Custody, all Class “D” felonies; as well as Interference with Official Acts, and seven counts of Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
