On 5-12-2016 at approximately 10:45 p.m. a Brown County Deputy, on routine patrol in the vicinity of 300th on Kestrel, noticed a vehicle pull off the side of the road and turn its lights out. Upon further investigation by the deputy, it was determined the vehicle and the license plate were both stolen out of Leavenworth County.

When the deputy made contact with the male driver and female occupant, both gave false names. Both subjects were placed under arrest for possession of stolen property X 2 and were transported to the Brown County jail. While at the jail the pair were later identified as Simon Nigel Pohl 32, St Joseph, Missouri and Jessica Mottin 27 Atchison.


Mottin was arrested on charges of Possession of Stolen Property X 2, Felony Obstruction, Possession of Meth, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Traffic Contraband into a Correctional Facility. Mottin also had a $2,500 Warrant out of Shawnee County for Trafficking Contraband in to a Correctional Facility.
