Arrest Made in Fayette County Home Break-In

An investigation into a home break-in last month has led to the arrest of a north Iowa man on felony charges.

The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office originally responded to the burglary at a home in Waucoma shortly before midnight on May 28th. Thursday, they arrested 23-year-old Clayton Fettkether of Dunkerton for third degree burglary and second degree criminal mischief, both class D felonies, second degree arson, a class C felony, and third degree theft, an aggravated misdemeanor. 

Fettkether is accused of breaking into the home and stealing several items, including a gun and the homeowner’s dog. The sheriff’s office says a Facebook post eventually led to the recovery of the dog, which was located an hour away from its home two days later. Most of the other stolen items, including the gun, were also recovered.

Fettkether was booked into the Fayette County Jail, but posted a $15,000 bail and was released with the promise to appear in court.

The Black Hawk County Sheriff’s Office assisted in the investigation.
