An investigation by Sheriff’s Officials in Fremont County into a burglary which occurred on August 4th, has resulted in the arrest of two Council Bluffs residents. 39-year old Nathan Jacob Morris, and 35-year old Tema Elaine Hill, were arrested after Council Bluffs Police stopped a vehicle the pair were in, and located several items that were believed to have been stolen.

Officials say they believe the pair were involved in the burglary of a home in the 2500 block of 278th Avenue in Fremont County, after they received a call about suspicious persons located at the residence. On August 11th, items from the burglary were found in a field in rural Fremont County. The items recovered from Morris and Hill’s vehicle, were not from the original theft reported on the 4th, however.

Both suspects are being held on $10,000 cash bond, facing charges of Burglary in the 3rd degree, Possession of Burglary Tools, Theft, and Child Endangerment. Morris was being held in the Fremont County Jail, while Hill was transported to the Montgomery County Jail. The couple face additional charges associated with other burglaries reported in Pottawattamie and Mills Counties.

Officials say if you have had items stolen recently, you should contact your local law enforcement agency. They add, that it would be a good idea to check any unattended houses or buildings, to make sure nothing has been taken.
