Neb. traffic stop leads to Iowa fugitives’ arrest

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.
