Authorities have captured four suspects and a fugitive, who were allegedly trying to break into an occupied rural Black Hawk County home north of Waterloo.


Around 6:30 AM on Monday (Aug. 13, 2018), sheriff's officials received a call from a woman reporting that while she was in her home, people were knocking on the front and back doors at the same time. She also discovered that a window on the front door was busted, but no one gained entry.

All of the suspects fled before officers arrived.

A search of the area near the home resulted in the arrest of four of the five suspects. Authorities identified them as: Aaron Kingsley, 37, and Hayley Kingsley, 19, both of Denver; and Bruce Miller, 24, and Keeley Jordan, 33, both of Waterloo. They face charges of burglary and attempted burglary.

The fifth suspect avoided arrest until Tuesday night, when he was taken into custody in Bremer County. Officials identified the fugitive as Steven Rhoads, 34, of Denver. He was charged with second-degree attempted burglary.

Black Hawk County sheriff's officials were assisted by Waterloo Police, Cedar Falls Police, and the Iowa State Patrol.
