A Denison man was arrested after a text-a-tip about a vehicle being driven recklessly in the Alton area. 


Deputies located the vehicle around 7:17pm Wednesday.  During the investigation, deputies determined the driver, 37-year-old Joseph Treinen of Denison, was driving with a barred license.  Deputies also suspected he possessed illegal drugs. A law enforcement K-9 alerted on the odor of narcotics coming from inside the vehicle where deputies later discovered multiple glass pipes used for smoking controlled substances, methamphetamine and marijuana.


Treinen was arrested and brought to the Sioux County Jail where he was charged with operating a motor vehicle with a barred driver’s license, possession of methamphetamines, possession of marijuana-third offense, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
