(Greenfield, Iowa) – The Adair County Sheriff’s Office reports a central Iowa man was arrested last week on an Adair County warrant. 23-year-old Trayvon Damontas Patrick Taylor, of Des Moines, was arrested Wednesday morning on a warrant for Failure to Appear on an original Violation of Probation, charge. Taylor was being held in the Adair  County Jail without bond, until being released later that same day following time served.

And, on Feb. 6th, 25-year-old Austin Brian Lanny Benge, of Greenfield, was pulled over for a traffic violation (no seat belt). A records check confirmed Benge’ drivers license was barred and there were three withdrawals in effect: for a suspension related to failure to re-file an SR-22 Insurance form; Habitual Offender; and a Revocation for OWI. The Deputy noted also, the vehicle’s registration was not current.

Benge was transported to the Adair County Jail and issued a citation for Driving While Barred and the Registration violation. He was issued written warnings for No Seat Belt, No Insurance, and Unlawful possession of a license, as well as failure to transfer a vehicle’s title. Benge was released after being issued his citations.
