Date posted - October 19, 2012

Webb, Iowa — Up to four people are facing charges after Clay County Sheriff’s Deputies collaborated with the Buena Vista County Sheriff’s Office as they carried out a search warrant.

On Tuesday (10/16) at approximately 9 PM, the Buena Vista County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a burglary in progress at a home on 240th Avenue, in rural Albert City. The owner of the property had returned home to find two subjects attempting to break into his home. They reported a burglary which had occurred a day or two prior to this report as well. The owner of the home was able to detain the two subjects at the residence until sheriff’s deputies arrived on scene.

After an investigation, a third suspect was taken into custody. A search warrant was then executed at a residence southeast of Webb. Deputies found several stolen items from three separate previous burglaries in Buena Vista county as well as a previous burglary in Clay County.

Forty-five-year-old Steven Lee Anderson of Webb was arrested by the Buena Vista County Deputies and charged with attempted burglary in the 2nd degree, a class D felony and one count of burglary in the 3rd degree also a class D felony. Thirty-seven-year-old Mary Jean Lawson of the same address was arrested and charged by Buena Vista County with attempted burglary in the 2nd degree, as well as 3rd degree burglary, both class D felonies.

Both Lawson and Anderson are currently being housed in the Buena Vista County Jail on bond.

Clay County Sheriff Randy Krukow advised that his office has charges pending against Andersen, Lawson, and one juvenile male for burglary and theft. Possible charges on a fourth individual are also pending as the investigation continues. The juvenile male also faces felony drug charges after a large quantity of marijuana and paraphernalia were found.

Further charges are also anticipated.
