Hawarden, Iowa — An Alcester, South Dakota man is facing a felony firearms charge after being pulled over by an Iowa State Trooper late Wednesday afternoon.
According to information released by the Iowa State Patrol, 45-year old Joseph Edward Constance was arrested at the corner of 420th Street and Cherry Avenue, northeast of Hawarden around 4:40 Wednesday afternoon.
Troopers say Constance had previously been convicted of a felony crime, which prevents him from being able to legally posses a firearm. The alleged discovery of a firearm in his possession led to a charge of being a Felon in Possession of a Firearm, which is a Class D Felony.
Online jail records indicate that Constance was booked into the Sioux County Jail, where he remained as of late morning Thursday.
