50 SHADES OF GREEN
The Des Moines Area Regional Transit Authority reported to police that on Sept. 3 a suspect came to the bus station to buy a bus pass with a counterfeit $50 bill. “Not only was the color off, but the paper didn’t feel right and it failed the pen test,” reports state. The suspect told DART employees that she had received the bill from the Star gas station on Second Avenue the night before. No arrests were made.
SHEW OR I’LL SHOOT
A man living at a trailer park at the 3800 block of East 14th Street called police claiming his neighbor knocked on his door around 2:30 p.m. on Sept. 3. When he opened the door, two men pushed their way inside demanding money. The victim pretended to comply, went to a cupboard where he keeps an unloaded revolver, pointed it at them and told them to leave. He said one of the suspects also had a gun, but the two retreated to the street, one stating, “You’re going to regret this.”
