Sioux County Sheriff

Two arrested following investigation – January 31

On Sunday, January 31, 2021 at 1:25 p.m., the Sioux County Sheriff’s office arrested Kamie Schiebout, age 42, of Sioux Center, IA and Jeffery Baker, age 45, of Chatsworth, IA.

The arrests stemmed from from an earlier incident that occurred on Monday, January 18 when a deputy sheriff observed Schiebout operating a vehicle and knew she had warrants for her arrest; she fled from the deputy and was not found that date.

On January 31, the sheriff’s office received information indicating Schiebout was staying at a Chatsworth residence and that the homeowner was helping her avoid arrest by concealing her and her vehicle at the residence.

Deputies obtained a search warrant for the Chatsworth house and discovered Schiebout hiding in a crawl space in a cellar area under the residence; she also had illegal drugs in her possession.

Baker was transported to the sheriff’s office where he was charged with accessory after the fact (hiding a fugitive).

Schiebout was transported to the Sioux County Jail where she was charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver, possession of marijuana, unlawful possession of prescription medication, possession of drug paraphernalia. Additionally, she was charged from the January 18 incident with reckless driving, operating an unregistered motor vehicle, operating a motor vehicle with a revoked driver’s license, operate a motor vehicle without a required ignition interlock device, driving on wrong side of two-way highway, failing to yield to an emergency vehicle, possession of a offensive weapon by a convicted felon, possession of methamphetamine (3rd or subsequent offense), possession of marijuana (third or subsequent offense) and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Hawarden Police Department and the Plymouth County Sheriff’s Office.
