FORT DODGE – A convicted Fort Dodge gun-toting ganster has been sent to prison after shooting a man, and now faces federal charges.

On April 18, 2017, 26-year-old Jovon Naylor was sentenced to prison on three charges related to a burglary occurring in February of 2015, and a shooting occurring in May of 2015 in Fort Dodge. Naylor was sentenced to 10 years in prison on the charge of Burglary in the Second Degree, 10 years in prison on the charge of Intimidation with a Dangerous Weapon, and 5 years in prison on the charge of Criminal Gang Participation. At the conclusion of the hearing, Naylor was ordered to remain in the custody of the Webster County Sheriff for transport to the Iowa Medical and Classification Center at Oakdale, Iowa, to serve his prison sentence.

Naylor has also been charged by Federal indictment in the United States District Court, Northern District of Iowa, with 17 counts related to the conspiracy to deliver and the delivery of controlled substances, the use of a firearm in the furtherance of drug trafficking, and possession of a firearm as a felon.

Naylor was among a handful of people arrested following a series of raids conducted during the morning of September 28, 2016. The Special Emergency Response Teams (SERT) with Fort Dodge/Webster County, Iowa State Patrol, and the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) executed multiple search warrants in relation to a nearly eighteen month investigation conducted by the Webster County Drug Task Force, FBI Central Iowa Gang Task Force, and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. The agencies focused on combatting violent crimes, narcotics trafficking, and gang-related offenses in the Fort Dodge area.

This case was prosecuted by Webster County Attorney Jennifer Benson and First Assistant Ryan Baldridge.
