Two of a kind
One of Justin Beiber’s friends, Lil Za, 19, was charged with felony drug possession after police found cocaine in Beiber’s California home during a search for evidence in his alleged egg raid back in January. The drugs were reportedly found in plain view, but the amount was not disclosed.
Another home search brought up similar results when police found two pounds of marijuana, cocaine and drug packaging materials in an Iowa City home earlier this month, leading to the arrest of Keenan Mayhugh, 21. Mayhugh admitted to police that he had intended to deliver the marijuana and resell the cocaine, which he bought in Chicago.

Fight ends in stabbing outside McDonalds
Police responded to a stabbing at the McDonalds on 601 University Ave. on Aug. 26. An employee told police she heard yelling and looked up to see a black male wearing a white shirt, red hat and blue jean shorts chasing the victim. The suspect caught up with the victim and stabbed him at least three times with what the employee described as a fairly long knife. The suspect yelled, “That’s what you get, mother fucker” while stabbing the victim, who then ran into the south door of the McDonalds. The suspect followed him for a short time but did not enter the building and left in an unknown direction. The witness described the suspect as about 5-foot-9 and 170 pounds.
A sketchy story
An officer was called to 335 Forest Ave. on Aug. 24 for a dispute. He met with Latricia Foster, who told the officer she was asleep inside when she heard the voice of the suspect and that he entered through the window on the west side of the unit, which does not lock. Foster said the suspect verbally threatened her but couldn’t recall what was said. She told the officer the suspect did not live there, though it is listed as his mailing address. The police report stated, “The story does not seem to add up.”
A burglary was reported at 1434 East Walnut St. on the night of Aug. 26. The officer met with David Gonzalez-Vera, who said his apartment was broken into and his 42-inch TV stolen. The officer reported the door was likely kicked in due to damage on the trim around it. During the investigation, Shea Wallace, another resident of the building, informed police that the door to another apartment was kicked in, and he saw residents from another apartment in the building surrounding the door. When Wallace opened his door, the suspects ran away. The officer went to that apartment to speak with the residents and heard three to four male voices. He called for backup and knocked on the door when another officer arrived. Eventually, an unknown female answered the door and claimed it was just she and her boyfriend there sleeping. Police asked for her boyfriend, and he said the same thing, but later confessed to having friends over who left a while ago. He said he did not know their names, and the couple refused entry to the officers. CV
