Teens charged will illegally hunting deer

WEST UNION, Iowa Two northeast Iowa teenagers accused of illegally hunting deer are facing charges.

Officials say 19-year-old Zachery Tolias of Waucoma and 16-year-old Evan Hackman of West Union were caught last week after a brief chase near St. Lucas.

The Fayette County sheriff's office says the pair was using a spotlight on deer. Troopers in an Iowa State Patrol plane spotted the light last Thursday, and radioed the information to officers on the ground.

The patrol, the sheriff's office and the Iowa Department of Natural Resources team up during the fall with night flights to catch poachers.
