The Sioux County Sheriff’s Office reports the reward is being offered by a private party for information that could lead to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator or perpetrators and/or the recovery of property taken in the case. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office.
It all started about 6:20 PM on the evening of February 23rd, when the Sioux County Sheriff’s Office received a report from the Woodbury County Sheriff’s Office of a suspicious vehicle that was parked near Sioux City.
Upon further investigation, deputies determined that the vehicle found near Sioux City belonged to rural Hawarden residents. That led to the discovery that the vehicle owner’s home, northeast of Hawarden, had been burglarized.
Deputies found that the person or people who burglarized the home damaged a door to get inside. Several items were taken including a large safe, power tools, firearms, and cash.
The case remains under investigation.
