Brief standoff in Farragut, 2 arrested

Jonathan Lee Million, 30, of Marshalltown, formally of Shenandoah, and Lisa Ann Costello, 43, of Farragut.

On Nov. 2, deputies with the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a male party wanted out of Marshalltown who was hiding inside a residence in Farragut.

Deputies attempted to make contact with the residents located at a home in the 800 block of Essex St, in Farragut.  While on scene, the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office received an anonymous call of two men wearing masks, armed with guns at the bank in Riverton.  The bank in Riverton had been closed for several years.  This call was found to be fraudulent.

Deputies then observed a male matching the description of the wanted male, attempt to exit the home and then reenter upon observing law enforcement still in the area.

Deputies forced entry into the home and Fremont County K9 Roby was deployed.  Two occupants of the residence surrendered to law enforcement prior to the K9 entering the residence.

Deputies arrested Jonathan Lee Million, 30, of Marshalltown, formally of Shenandoah, and Lisa Ann Costello, 43, of Farragut.

A search warrant was conducted on the residence and several items of evidence were recovered, including a loaded firearm reported stolen during a burglary out of Fremont County.

Million was arrested on an outstanding warrant out of Marshalltown.  He was also arrested for Interference with Official Acts, Theft 4th Degree, and two counts of Possession of a Weapon by a felon.

Costello was arrested for Accessory of a Felony After the Fact, Possession of Methamphetamine, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

More charges are pending in this case.

The Tabor Police Department and Shenandoah Police Department assisted the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office in this investigation.
