Two of a Kind
Last year, Radric Davis (a.k.a. Gucci Mane, then 33) was arrested for possession of marijuana and for threatening police officers. A friend of Davis’ called the police to warn them of his erratic behavior, and once officials arrived, Davis began cursing at them and threatening them. He was taken into custody at 12:05 a.m. on Sept. 14, 2013.
Although his friends didn’t need to call him in for acting crazy, and he didn’t start cursing at police officials, Darreau Robinson, 33, does have one thing in common with Gucci Mane — he was arrested on Oct. 31 for also possessing marijuana. He was taken to Polk County Jail at 11:34 a.m., and his bail is set at $2,000.
The Urbandale Police Department is asking for help in identifying two suspects. Officials would like to speak to the three suspects — a black female and two black males — regarding a theft case at a local Urbandale business. The female was last seen with black hair and wearing a pink long sleeve shirt. The men were last seen wearing dark pants, one with a white stripped t-shirt and the other wearing a dark colored jacket with white stripes around the arms. If you have any information regarding the suspects or case in general, please contact the Urbandale Police Department Criminal Investigation Division at 515-278-3926 or CrimeStoppers at 515-223-1400.

High times of East Grand
Armandina Mayorga alerted police on Dec. 9 of an attempted robbery at her shop at 1530 E. Grand Ave. The victim stated that she was sitting in a side room of the store with her daughter, Beatrice, when they heard the bell of the shop door. Mayorga went to help the customer — a black male wearing a black coat, pants and a ski mask. The suspect told Mayorga to go inside, but she did not hear him. He repeated himself and then pointed to the black handgun that was in the waistband of his pants. Beatrice came out to help her mother, and the man said “never mind,” and ran out of the shop taking nothing with him. Beatrice stated that the man smelled of marijuana. CV
