The Sioux County Sheriff’s Office reports that they arrested 18-year-old Skyler Gonnerman of Sioux Center on Tuesday (5/14) on a charge of trafficking stolen firearms.

Twenty-year-old Dakota Acevedo of Rock Rapids was also formally charged with trafficking stolen firearms; but he is currently an inmate of another jail on unrelated charges. Once those charges are completed, the Sheriff’s Office says Acevedo will be transported to the Sioux County Jail.
