October 2nd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

Page County Sheriff Lyle Palmer reports his office received a call for assistance Monday at Rapp Park, north of Shenandoah. The call came from Iowa Department of Natural Resource Enforcement Officer Deb Howe.  Officer Howe was at the park with several individuals suspected of Iowa Code violations.  Deputies from the Page County Sheriff’s Office responded. Those Deputies handled violations of the Iowa Code that did not deal with Fish and Game violations. After an investigation, Deputies issued 35-year old Aaron E. Howell of Shenandoah,  a citation for improper use of registration.

Also on Monday, Page County Deputies responded to a report of a motor vehicle in the ditch on East Washington Street just east of the West Nodaway River Bridge.  After an investigation, it was determined that 37-year old Tabatha Louise Hawk, of Clarinda,  was driving a 2004 Chrsler Sebring registered to Dennis Hamilton also of Clarinda.  The car was westbound on East Washington when it went off the shoulder and then into the ditch on the north side.  When it entered the ditch, the car sustained front end damage.  Hawk was cited for Failure to prove security against liability (no insurance) accident related and Operation of a vehicle without a valid driver’s license.  There were no injuries reported.
