WHO HAS THE ENERGY FOR THIS?
Police were called to MidAmerican on Court Avenue on March 3 at 3 p.m. on a report of second-degree theft. The supervisor reported $2,000 missing from transactions and indicated the suspect may be an employee. Upon review of surveillance tapes, police have reason to believe the theft was an inside job.
A robbery was reported at 5:18 p.m. at Merle Hay Mall on March 4. Police met with a teenage victim who was approached by a group of high-schoolers demanding his wallet or they would “beat his ass.” The victim gave them the $8 from his wallet, and the group left. Several of the suspects were identified as students at Urbandale High School.
EYE SPY A CRAZED METH-HEAD
Police stopped a vehicle on the 2600 block of Lyon in the early hours of March 3 for a burnt-out brake light. After at first refusing to produce identification, the driver was eventually discovered to have multiple outstanding warrants for her arrest. She also admitted to hiding methamphetamine in her glasses case. As she was handcuffed, she spit in an officer’s face and told him that she had AIDS. She told the officer, “I hope you get AIDS and die, bitch.” The suspect was arrested on multiple warrants and possession of schedule II methamphetamine.
On March 3 at around 1:50 p.m., an officer arrived at the 800 block of East 27th Street regarding animal neglect. Upon investigation, it was discovered that a dog was left outside with no food, drink or shelter and was barking while tied up to a fence. It had no apparent city license. When no one answered the door, the cop took the dog, because the temperature was 15 degrees that day with a wind-chill of 4 degrees. CV
