On the clock
Des Moines Police
A woman from the 2600 block of 27th Place called
police on July 13 around 4 p.m. and said her
neighbor’s home was being burglarized by two
young men. She said she saw one of them carrying
a large item out of the house. She was able
to describe one of the alleged suspects and
their vehicle, which reportedly turned out to
be stolen. Her husband reportedly followed the
vehicle to an apartment building at 2400 Hickman
Road, while she circled the house to find a
screen had been cut open in a back window. The
alleged victim arrived home to find three flat
screen TVs and a laptop missing, all with a
total value of $3,430. Police went to the apartment
complex and found the vehicle parked outside.
It was impounded. The investigation continues.
DON’T MESS WITH THE MARSHALS
A woman at the 1100 block of 26th Street reportedly
left for Chicago for a family emergency around
3 p.m. on July 12. While she was gone, U.S.
Marshals executed a search warrant at her home
looking for her boyfriend. When she returned
she found her windows had been boarded up and
her wall-mounted TV was gone. The landlord said
he boarded the window to secure it after the
Marshals had kicked it in and left it open,
but at that time the TV was on the wall, he
said. No suspects.
A Fareway employee was leaving work at the
100 E. Euclid location carrying two bank deposit
bags filled with an undisclosed amount of money
around 9:20 p.m. on July 11, when a teenaged
male ran toward him and allegedly tried to tackle
him. He reportedly defended himself, and they
wrestled on the ground. He put the alleged suspect
in a headlock until the kid bit his forearm
and punched him in the back of the head. The
kid grabbed the money bags, darted to a vehicle
and took off. Investigations continue. CV
