Blotter — Des Moines
Got the TV but not the fancy belts
Sandra Solorzano reported a burglary at her home the night of July 4, when she came home after midnight and found several lights on and her 40-inch Samsung TV missing. She also reported $200 missing from one of her purses. Solorzano told police the suspect was probably not Hispanic because they didn’t steal her fancy belts and hats, which were in plain sight and worth a lot of money.
Leave the motorcycle — take the chaps

The unknown suspect also looked through Dickson’s vehicle glovebox but took nothing. The outbuilding closest to Whaley’s house was missing about $600 of riding leathers, motorcycle chaps, gloves, two pairs of prescription sunglasses and a jacket, according to Whaley. The building also contains motorcycles, but none were missing. No arrests were made.
Soccer field scuffle
Following an altercation over the loss of a game at the Soccer House in West Des Moines on July 6, Saryee Mulbah of Des Moines drove away from the scene in his girlfriend Wadia Mbayoh’s car. While he was at the intersection of Highway 28 and Army Post Road, a blue truck pulled up behind him and then next to him. When Mulbah didn’t recognize the driver, only that he had followed him from the Soccer House, Mulbah tried to get away from the truck, but it rammed into the rear of his car in an attempt to run it off the road. Mulbah did not sustain injuries from that incident, but the case is still under investigation. CV
