Two federal fugitives from Iowa have been arrested in Nebraska after a traffic stop.
The Nebraska State Patrol says Shane Houke and Dawn Lagrange, both 30 and both from Cedar Rapids, were arrested after Lexington police issued an alert to watch for their SUV, after the two allegedly drove off from a convenience store there without paying for gas.
A Nebraska trooper pulled the car over on westbound I-80, near the Darr Exit in Dawson County.
NSP reports Houke, the driver, was wanted by the U.S. Marshals Service Northern Iowa Fugitive Task Force on multiple warrants for Failure to Appear, Contempt of Court on Conspiracy to Commit a Felony, and False Use of a Credit Card.
Lagrange, the passenger, was also wanted on federal fugitive warrants for Illegal Use of Credit Cards, Conspiracy to Commit a Felony, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Gathering Where Controlled Substances are Used.
Both Houke and Lagrange are being held in the Dawson County Jail.
