On the clock

Des Moines Police

June 14-20


Police responded to an apartment at the 1000 block of 26th Street at 5:40 p.m. on June 19 where the resident said he was robbed at gunpoint by two men. He answered the door to find the two men at the door pretending to know a mutual acquaintance. When they stepped inside, one allegedly pulled a gun on him and the other pulled a knife on his female guest. They demanded money, so he reportedly gave them $150. The officer noted that the female witness had been involved in an accident case a week earlier and suspected that she knew the two robbers based on witness testimonies of that case, but she denied it.


A woman checked into the emergency room at 11:30 p.m. on June 19 and told staff that she was in a fight at a party where she had gone to buy a joint soaked in embalming fluid (called “smoking piss,” she said). She also said she and some friends had gone to a store to buy a bottle of liquor, and once back inside the vehicle, one occupant could not find the bottle. When they discovered it under the woman’s seat, they accused her of trying to steal it. So, instead of drinking the bottle, they allegedly broke it over the woman’s head. No arrests were made.


Wells Fargo Home Mortgage sent an inspector to a property at the 1300 block of 9th Street to check on a property it had foreclosed and the house has sat vacant for more than six months. The inspector reported that copper tubing/wiring had been stolen from the basement of the property. No dollar amount was reported regarding damages. Police have no suspects. CV
