9 26 22 Chilel Ramirez

A Rock Valley man was arrested early Sunday morning in Sioux Center on an outstanding warrant.  At 7:27 a.m. Sunday, the Sioux County Sheriff’s Office arrested 39-year-old Rigoberto Chilel-Ramirez of Rock Valley.


The arrest happened after a deputy saw Chilel-Ramirez operating a motor vehicle on South Main Avenue in Sioux Center, and believed there to be an outstanding Sioux County warrant for his arrest. After confirming that the warrant was valid, the deputy stopped Chilel-Ramirez and then discovered that his driver’s license was not valid.


Chilel-Ramirez was brought to the Sioux County Jail for the outstanding arrest warrant for violation of probation and charged with operating a motor vehicle with a suspended driver’s license and failure to obtain SR-22 insurance.
