FORT MADISON (AP) --- A southeast Iowa teenager has been accused of hiring someone to do drive by shootings on the homes of two police officers.

The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation says 18-year-old Dillen Eaves, of Fort Madison, was arrested Friday.

Authorities say Eaves paid an individual $1,200 in January and supplied a gun. The shootings were never carried out.

Eaves has been charged with felony counts of conspiracy to commit terrorism and conspiracy to commit intimidation with a dangerous weapon. He is at the Des Moines County Jail on $150,000 cash-only bond.
