Crime Beat

• Kristin J. Cleverly, 36, of Colfax, was arrested and charged with violation of a no contact order at 1 a.m. Dec. 21. According to a Colfax police report, officers received a call to a home in the 100 block of West Washington Street in Colfax with reports Cleverly was there in violation of the court protective order. She was located and transported to the Jasper County Jail. Police said charges could also be pending in the case against the individual who transported Cleverly to the location.

In the same incident Dec. 21, a warrant was issued for the arrest of Tawnya J. Koder, 47, of Altoona for allegedly stealing Cleverly’s back pack. According to the Colfax police, Koder is charged with fourth-degree theft after she reportedly took Cleverly’s back with contents estimated to be worth $400.

Cleverly told investigators she had put her back pack in a vehicle driven by Koder to go shopping and stepped away for a moment. Koder told the victim she needed to leave to pay for gasoline that she had put in her vehicle, but did not have the money to pay for at the time. Cleverly claims Koder never returned, but she later made contact and refused to return the backpack unless the victim gave her $100.
