Two of a Kind?1/28/2015
Kevin Nash, 55, was arrested on Christmas Eve last year for battery against his son Tristen, 18. Reports indicate that Tristen came home drunk and was being aggressive toward his family, specifically his mother. Nash stepped in and was later arrested for battery. Two hours later, Tristen was arrested for battery against his mother.
They say Christmas is a time to make memories — but some are better than others. Just like Nash, Randall Cue, 56, made his own not-so-great holiday memories. Cue was arrested on Dec. 25, 2014, for domestic assault. He was taken to Polk County Jail around 1 p.m. Sometimes the holidays just don’t bring out the best in people.

Blotter – Des Moines
Police responded to a burglary report on Jan. 18 made by Achol Makuet. The victim stated that in the week prior her mother had a stroke and her brother went to jail. Makuet and her mother moved in with Makuet’s aunt so she could help take care of her mother. Then on the Jan. 18, Makuet’s neighbor called her and said people were stealing things from her house. Makuet and her mother went back to their house to investigate and saw a small U-Haul parked in their driveway. The three suspects sped off before Makuet or her mother could get a license plate number or see any specific faces. Although neither woman knows who the suspects were, they are suspicious that Makuet’s brother gave them his key before he went to jail.
Who needs matching shoes, anyway?
Stefon Brown called the police on Jan. 19 to report a burglary. Brown said he left his house around 3 p.m. while his roommate was still home, and Brown’s father didn’t return home until about 7:30 p.m. when the roommate was no longer there. Upon arriving, the men noticed that the back door appeared to have been tampered with, and the window to Brown’s upstairs bedroom was broken. In Brown’s closet in his bedroom, nine single basketball shoes were missing. Brown stated that few people know of his shoe collection except for the roommate.
Not a great getaway
Police were notified on Jan. 19 of a robbery report at a local McDonald’s. Michael Morrissey reported that he was sitting in his parked car in the McDonald’s parking lot checking his emails on his phone when a man broke out his window and demanded Morrissey give the suspect all of his money. Morrissey noticed a car sitting behind his blocking him in. Morrissey’s wallet was sitting on the passenger seat and the suspect saw it. An altercation broke out and Morrissey was hit on the left side of his head in his ear. Once the suspect obtained the wallet, he ran to the waiting car and the car sped off without him, dragging him a few feet. The car fled with the suspect frantically chasing after it. A witness obtained the car’s license plate number. CV
