The Fremont County Sheriff’s Office is reporting the arrest of Dusty Jay VanRenan, age 31, of Sidney, Iowa for Ongoing Criminal Conduct, a Class B Felony and Theft in the Second Degree, a Class D Felony. The basis of the charges are related to VanRenan’s conduct while serving as the manager of the Fremont County Landfill.  

The Investigation of VanRenan began in September of 2015 when Fremont County Sheriff Kevin Aistrope was approached by a member of the Fremont County Landfill Board with suspicion that there may have been some fraudulent activity by VanRenan, the former landfill manager. After the initial investigation by the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office it was determined that there was enough suspicion that there had been misappropriation to ask for assistance form the Iowa State Auditor’s Office.  

After the completion of the State Auditor’s Office investigation, it was determined that VanRenan, who had started a recycling program at the landfill, had used the landfills flatbed truck to haul nine load of pallets to AA Pallet in Council Bluffs and sold the pallets for a total of $5,454.50. The checks were made out in VanRenan’s name and the money was never paid to the landfill.

VanRenan turned himself in to the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office and posted ten percent on the $25,000.00 bond. 

The State Auditor’s Office released a full report of the audit available here.  

The Fremont County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Fremont County Attorney’s Office and the Iowa State Auditor’s Office in this investigation. All further inquiries should be directed to the Fremont County Attorney’s Office.

The Fremont County Sheriff’s Office wants to alert the public of a current telephone scam that has recently effected several Fremont County residents.

The Fremont County Sheriff’s Office has received several calls relating to citizens being contacted by someone claiming to be from the IRS and requesting personal information to pay delinquent taxes owed to the government. Callers are being told to call back to the office and some are given a case number to speak with an agent.

The Sheriff’s Office wants to reiterate that these calls are not from the IRS and to not give personal information of any kind over the phone.

According to the IRS official website, the IRS will never:

* Call to demand immediate payment over the phone, nor will the agency call about taxes owed without first having mailed you several bills

* Call or email you to verify your identity by asking for personal and financial information.

* Demand that you pay taxes without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe.

* Require you to use a specific payment method for your taxes, such as a prepaid debit card.

* Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone or e-mail.

* Threaten to immediately bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have you arrested for not paying.


If you get a phone call from someone claiming to be from the IRS and asking for money or to verify your identity, here’s what you should do:


If you don’t owe taxes, or have no reason to think that you do:


Do not give out any information. Hang up immediately. Contact TIGTA to report the call. Use their IRS Impersonation Scam Reporting web page. You can also call 800-366-4484

Report it to the Federal Trade Commission. Use the
FTC Complaint Assistant on FTC.gov. Please add “IRS Telephone Scam” in the notes.
