Iowa Fugitives Arrested Following Nebraska Traffic Stop
LEXINGTON, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say a traffic stop in central Nebraska has led to the arrest of two people wanted in Iowa.
The Nebraska State Patrol says 30-year-old Shane Houke and 30-year-old Dawn Lagrange, both of Cedar Rapids, were arrested Saturday morning near Lexington.
Local police pulled over a vehicle driven by Houke after it was linked to a nearby convenience store where a driver allegedly failed to pay for gas and left. Lagrange was a passenger in Houke's vehicle.
Authorities determined both Houke and Lagrange were listed on a most wanted list compiled by the US Marshals Services in Iowa. Both face multiple warrants such as conspiracy to commit a felony.
Houke and Lagrange were taken to the Dawson County Jail. Court records do not list attorneys.
