Des Moines Police

Jan. 6-11

Jan. 10, 12 p.m.

Reckless use of fire at the 1000 block of Porter Avenue. Police were called to Lincoln High School after a 9th grade teacher reportedly witnessed two boys using a lighter and an aerosol can as a “homemade blow torch.” There was a prior incident that went unreported in December when the teacher saw a large flame beneath/beside the table where the boys were seated. He had explained the consequences of their actions and warned them not to do it again. This was the second incident with the two boys, so this time the cops were called. This time another student reported witnessing them spraying cologne onto the tabletop and lighting it on fire. After admitting what they’d done, both boys were placed on delayed referral to Juvenile Court Services.

Jan. 12, 3:50 a.m.

Public intoxication at the 6000 block of Chaffee Road. Police were dispatched to an apartment complex multiple times throughout the night regarding noise from a party. Police warned the resident to shut the party down and stay inside, as they could tell she was intoxicated. When they arrived there again regarding a separate incident, they saw the woman walking in the hallways twice, and at one point, she appeared to be tampering with the fire extinguisher mounted on the wall. As officers proceeded with arrest, she allegedly became combative. They found a pot pipe and prescription pills with someone else’s name on the label in her possession. She was arrested and charged with possession and assault on a police officer.

Jan. 12, 4:52 a.m.

Burglary at the 3400 block of Merle Hay Road. Police responded to an alarm at Christopher’s Fine Jewelry and found the glass door was broken with a block of concrete. They observed fresh footprints in the snow leading to and away from the door and followed them into a parking lot where there were also fresh tire tracks. They discovered several coins were missing from a display as well as other collectible currency from a desk drawer and a number of Silver Eagle Silver Dollars. CV
