DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Two South Carolina men were jailed Saturday
after Iowa authorities say they were involved in numerous illegal
hunting activities in the state.
Thirty-eight-year-old Mike Sillanpaa, of Summerville, and 38-year-old
David Larry Gordon of North Charleston were arrested after officers with
the Iowa Department of Natural Resources searched a Des Moines motel, a
local residence and a vehicle this morning.
Officers seized two freshly killed deer, two shotguns, a high-powered
rifle and two crossbows.
Mounted deer located in South Carolina have been returned to Iowa as
part of the investigation.
