Charges Pending After Authorities Impound Two Motorcycles

Two motorcycles were impounded and two drivers were taken into custody last Friday after a traffic stop in Jefferson. The Jefferson Police Department reports an officer performed the stop at approximately 1:56 p.m. and was advised by the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) that one of the drivers was wanted on outstanding Iowa warrants. Fifty-four-year-old Curtis Gene Hoyt of Perry was arrested on two warrants, one for an assault in Perry and another for failure to appear on a Dallas County operating while intoxicated charge. He was also subsequently charged by the Jefferson officer with operating while intoxicated and driving while revoked, serious misdemeanors, and failure to provide proof of financial liability, a simple misdemeanor. The other driver, 35-year-old Charles Adam Bradshaw of Jefferson, was also cited for failure to have a valid license and failure to provide proof of financial liability. During the impound inventory of the motorcycles, a large quantity of suspected methamphetamine, mushrooms, unknown pills and drug paraphernalia were found. Additional charges are pending lab results.
