Hide and seek

SIOUX CENTER, Iowa | "One Mississippi, two Mississippi, three Mississippi, alright here I come to find you!"

A Sioux Center woman was arrested after a brief standoff with police Nov. 21.

The Sioux County Sheriff’s Office arrested Kamie Schiebout, 39, for an outstanding warrant for failure to appear for sentencing, a press release said.

The arrest stemmed from an incident where deputies went to 2767 400th St., three miles west of Sioux Center in an attempt to serve the arrest warrant on Schiebout. She was seen inside the residence by the responding deputies but refused to come to the door.

The Sheriff's Office then called out an emergency response team made up of officers from the Sioux, Plymouth and Cherokee County Sheriff’s Offices. After negotiations with people inside the home failed, the team then made entry into the residence and found Schiebout hiding under a pickup bed inside the garage. She was taken into custody and booked into the Sioux County Jail.

Man arrested for making roids

ORANGE CITY, Iowa | His case didn't look STRONG in court.

A 23-year-old Orange City man pleaded guilty to manufacturing anabolic steroids in federal court in Sioux City on Nov. 20.

James Nhan was convicted of one count of manufacturing anabolic steroids, which are Schedule III controlled substances, a press release said.

In a plea agreement, Nhan admitted that, from late 2014 until Dec. 15, 2015, he manufactured anabolic steroids and intended to distribute some of the steroids to various customers. In December 2015, law enforcement executed a search warrant on Nhan’s residence and seized numerous vials containing anabolic steroids, as well as laboratory equipment, packing material, labels, and sheets of papers listing the names and addresses of individuals who had purchased or intended to purchase the steroids, the release said.

Sentencing before United States District Court Chief Judge Leonard T. Strand will be set at a later date. Nhan remains free on bond pending sentencing.

Nhan faces a possible maximum sentence of 10 years imprisonment, a $500,000 fine, $100 in special assessments and at least two years of supervised release following any imprisonment, the release said.
