A faculty member at Drake University called police on April 30 reporting a missing piccolo that was taken from the band room sometime between 2009 and 2010. They said they thought it was checked out, but apparently it wasn’t. The instrument was valued at $1,325. No suspects were named.


A 15-year-old male showed up at a Walgreens around 10 p.m. on April 30, near his grandparents’ house at the 1500 block of Oak Park, telling a story about how his grandparents assaulted him while his mother did nothing. Police arrived, and he told the same story to them: His grandparents had accused him of stealing their prescription medications, and held him down with a foot, pulling on his “bad leg,” slapping him and pulling his hair, as he tried to leave the house. After investigating, police discovered the boy had sickle cell anemia, which caused him to have a “bad leg and hip.” The alleged victim was admitted ino the hospital, but no charges were filed.


A Girl Scouts of America Troop leader discovered more than $8,000 of the Troop’s money had been used for suspicious personal purchases, such as food and other non-troop related items. She said the Council advised her not to take the matter to the police and did nothing to support her findings. The money was supposed to be used for Girl Scout trips, activities and supplies. Investigations continue. CV
