Jefferson Police BadgeA multiple county investigation resulted in a Jefferson man facing several charges.

Jefferson Police Captain Heath Enns says they received a call just after 8am Wednesday from a Calhoun County Sheriff’s Deputy who had located a 2012 Dodge Ram truck in a ditch that belonged to Renew Energy in Jefferson. The deputy spoke to the driver, Edward Goff, as well as the passenger, Samantha Cline-Hoskins, and they claimed they were heading to Des Moines. The deputy then transported the couple to a Sparky’s One Stop Gas Station in Rockwell City. At 11:40am, the couple then allegedly stole a 2008 Cadillac CTS from the gas station.

At 12:39pm, a Pocahontas County Deputy located the stolen Cadillac and attempted to stop it, but a chase ensued. The near 20-minute chase came to a stop when the vehicle lost control. Goff and Cline-Hoskins were then arrested and charged with a felony for second degree theft of the Cadillac by the Calhoun County Sheriff’s office.

It was later discovered that neither Goff nor Cline-Hoskins work for Renew Energy and that they had taken the Renew Energy truck. Just before 7pm, a report of several stolen items was made to the Jefferson Police Department from the residence where the victim was allowing the couple to stay. Over $950, mostly in electronics, were reported missing and police were able to confirm the items were in the bed of the Renew Energy truck.

Enns says Goff is charged with two aggravated misdemeanors for third degree theft and operation of a vehicle without owner’s consent. Enns believes the two will face additional charges by the Pocahontas County Sheriff’s office. Both Goff and Cline-Hoskins were booked into and remain in the Calhoun County jail. Jefferson Police have requested an arrest warrant for Goff. Enns tells Raccoon Valley Radio they will be transported to Pocahontas for their charges, before being brought back to Jefferson.
