Blotter — Des Moines
Muddy shoe garage tattoo
Police reported to the home of Brian Dotts on Feb. 2 for a call about an attempted burglary. Dotts explained to the police that his home is for sale and he had come back to check on it. When he arrived, he noticed that the back garage door had a muddy shoe print on it, and the door handle appeared to be broken. He walked around the house to see if anything was disturbed or missing but found no evidence of missing items or household damage. The house was empty since he is selling it, so everything seemed under control. Dotts said he wanted to report the incident because there had been an increasing number of burglary cases in the neighborhood lately.
A little too much Bailys
Authorities were tipped to a robbery of an individual on Feb. 2. Police found Shawn Cervantez on the side of the road sporting red, watery eyes and a split lip. Cervantez also showed signs of intoxication with slurred speech, staggering and changing his story multiple times. The victim first told police he was drinking at Bailys bar on the east side when two female workers offered to give him a ride to a shelter. He took the ride, and when the two women dropped him off he was beaten up and the women ran to a different car and left. Then he told police that he was beaten up inside of the car, and when they got there, he was thrown out of the vehicle and money from his wallet was stolen. He first stated that he was punched, but then changed his mind and said the suspects used a bottle. Cervantez was seen by medics to assess his situation.
While he was in, she was out
On Feb. 4, police responded to a burglary call placed by Daniel Patton. He stated he was recently running from the police because his wife called them to report a domestic dispute between the two. Patton was caught, arrested and was recently let out of jail. Upon his exit, Patton’s cousin, Jesse, told him that he witnessed Patton’s wife loading purses into the trunk of Patton’s car. Patton noticed two items missing from his home, but also listed two more suspects he believes have stolen from him in the past. Patton was unsure which day this occurred. CV
