When deputies arrived on scene, they spoke to the reporting party. The DCSO’s K9 Sasha was deployed to track the individual who left the vehicle. K9 Sasha led the deputies to a nearby acreage. When the deputies approached the residence, they could hear glass breaking. A female, later identified as Joy Konchalski (41) of Des Moines, was breaking a window. It was determined that Konchalski was not supposed to be at the residence.
A DRE (Drug Recognition Expert) conducted multiple tests at the jail. Konchalski was charged with OWI 1st Offense, driving too fast for road conditions, failure to maintain control, reckless driving, possession of drug paraphernalia, trespassing, burglary in the 3rd degree, and criminal mischief in the 4th degree. Konchalski is currently being held on a $7,000 bond/surety.
The DCSO was assisted by the Clay County Sheriff’s Office and the Milford Police Department.
All persons are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
