ASHTON—A 52-year-old Rockwell City man faces multiple charges following an investigation into a report that he had violated a no contact order Saturday, June 5, in Ashton.
The arrest of James Daniel Casey stemmed from a call about 3:40 p.m. that he was visiting an Ashton woman he is not to have contact, according to the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office.
A deputy found Casey’s vehicle, a 2005 Chevrolet Astro van, parked outside the residence; however, no one answered the door of the residence.
The deputy then parked nearby to watch the residence.
He observed Casey leave a few minutes later, squealing the tires of the van on the street and traveling at a high rate of speed, according to the incident report.
The deputy then initiated a traffic stop.
After arresting Casey on charges of driving while his license was denied, suspended, canceled or revoked; reckless driving; and violation of a no contact/protective order, the deputy was made aware Casey had left the residence with a bag.
After booking Casey at the county jail in Sibley, the deputy obtained a search warrant for the van and found items in it belonging to the woman, including underwear, DVDs, a title to a van, and a pry bar and other items associated with burglaries, according to the incident report.
Casey was further charged with third-degree burglary, possession of burglary tools and fifth-degree theft.
A charge of stalking — violation of a protective order was later added due to him making the woman “feel terrorized and frightened in her own home,” according to the complaint.
