The Carthage Police Department arrested a male on Sunday who said his name was Nicholas Sestito.
The next day it was determined that Jon Michael Sestito had given his brother’s name as an alias to avoid being arrested on two warrants.
25-year-old Jon Michael Sestito of Keokuk was arrested for resisting a peace officer, obstructing justice, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of controlled substance.
Jon Michael Sestito was also arrested on two warrants, one from Hancock County for failure to appear for driving while suspended and the other from Lee County, Iowa for escape.
Bail for Hancock County charges has been set at $15,000.
