On the clock Des Moines Police Sept. 20 – 26
A Paul Reveres Pizza delivery driver called police around 12:30 a.m. on Sept. 24 reporting a theft of $34.80 worth of pizza. The driver alleged that he delivered the pizzas to a resident at the 1600 block of Carpenter Avenue, but when he arrived, a woman opened the door, took the pizzas and never returned. When the woman finally came out, she allegedly grabbed the pizza delivery man by the neck and reached into his pockets. Two men reportedly followed her out and warned the driver to not touch the woman. The alleged victim eventually escaped the scene and called police. When officers arrived at the address, they heard people and saw them peeking out of the windows but no one answered the door. The investigation is currently ongoing.
Police were called to the 1600 block of Franklin Avenue regarding a 36-year-old man’s claim that his 56-year-old neighbor had assaulted him by slapping him in the forehead. The neighbor admitted to police that he did commit the simple assault upon his neighbor because he was angry at him for “riding his four-wheeler all over.” The man was arrested and transported to Polk County Jail.
A WIDOW’S WOES
A widowed woman called police around 8:30 p.m. on Sept. 20 after she discovered some of her deceased husband’s valuables were missing from her house, located at the 400 block of 45th Street. She claimed that her husband, who passed away in April, had left her a gold necklace with a cross and coin collection, which she kept hidden in her bedroom. On this evening, she chose to look at these items but found them to be missing. She told police that she believes her husband’s ex-wife would have motive to take them because she is currently trying to take her to court to get money from past child support that she still owed. She also claimed that the ex-wife is a drug addict and took these belongings to feed her habit. This investigation is still ongoing. CV
