Following an ongoing investigation into thefts in Northeast Iowa, the Fayette County Sheriff has arrested 5 area residents.


Just before 2:30pm Thursday (April 26), the sheriff executed a search warrant at 4957 "R" Avenue, just northwest of Oelwein, where authorities had speculated there was stolen property.

During the search, a 2007 Harley Davidson Heritage Softail motorcycle that was stolen from Grundy County, was seized.

As a result, the sheriff arrested 40 year old Jeremiah Larson Jr. of Oelwein, on charges of Theft-1st Degree, Possession of a Controlled Substance-3rd Offense, and Gathering Where Controlled Substances are Unlawfully Used. If convicted, Larson could get 10 years in prison.

The sheriff also arrested 23 year old Kristy Hall of Oelwein, 35 year old Darren Peyton of Calmar, 30 year old Sabrina Reisner of West Union, and 27 year old Sean Reisner of West Union.

Hall had a warrant for Failure to appear and a charge of Possession of Drug Paraphernalia; Peyton was arrested on a Parole Violation warrant-no bond hold; Sabrina Reisner was charged with Possession of Drug Paraphernalia; and Sean Reisner is charged with Driving While Barred.

All 5 were taken to the Fayette County jail.
