One UTV recovered and one man arrested in Ottumwa

One down and one to go.  The Wapello County Sheriff’s Office has arrested an Ottumwa man in connection with the theft of a UTV over the weekend.  22-year-old Dallas Tapley was arrested Tuesday morning in connection with the theft of a UTV last Saturday from a home in rural Wapello County.  The UTV was found Monday at a residence on Bluegrass Road in rural Wapello County.  Tapley is charged with first degree theft, possession of meth, assaulting a police officer, interference with official acts and possession of drug paraphernalia.  Tapley is in the Wapello County Jail on $30,000 cash bond.

Wapello County law enforcement is still looking for whoever stole another UTV late last week.  Last Thursday, a Polaris High Lifter UTV was reported taken from a residence on 180th Avenue in rural Wapello County.  It was found the next day in northern Davis County and has been returned to its owner.
