Two of a kind?


two of a kind-gilliamtwo of a kind-onesimoSeth Gilliam, who plays a priest on “The Walking Dead,” apparently doesn’t take his prayerful work home with him. Gilliam, 46, was arrested for speeding, possession and DUI — all in one day. Police arrested him in Georgia on May 3, clocking him at 107 mph. He blew a .107 blood alcohol level and was released after posting a bond of $9,818.

At least James Tako Onesimo only broke one law when he was arrested on April 30. Onesimo, also 46, was arrested for second-offense OWI at about 5:39 p.m. He was booked into the Polk County Jail and held on a hefty $8,000 bond.

Blotter — Des Moines

Up to no good

A witness called police to report a break-in at 2293 Saylor Road on May 4. The witness said she saw three or four black male juveniles kick in the back door, enter and then leave. She went to the house after they had gone and said the suspects appeared to be Hiatt Middle School students. The witness said her friend was following them in a vehicle when the group met up with a white male juvenile who had a pink cast on some part of his body. The group was last seen walking north on Sixth Avenue. The same evening, an officer was writing a report at Hubbell and Easton when he observed a white male with a pink cast on his left hand riding a bike. The officer spoke to the kid but didn’t mention the burglary.

Neighborhood watch

Police were dispatched to 4145 E. 24th Court on a burglary in progress on May 1. Upon arrival, they noticed shattered glass on the door leading to the garage on the house’s east side. There was blood on the door and the floor of the garage, but the suspect had fled the scene before police arrived. Police spoke to Linda Gauldin, who said she heard the sound of glass breaking coming from the backyard of the affected house. Knowing the house was vacant and no one should be inside, she walked across the street to investigate and found the door opened slightly on the bottom and saw feet inside. Gauldin yelled at the suspect to get out and then ran to a neighbor’s house. Gauldin told the neighbor to call police for help, and both women observed a male of unknown race running eastbound through the yards. The suspect was approximately 5-foot-10, 160 pounds and wearing white T-shirt and blue jeans. Nothing appeared to have been taken from the garage, and there was no video at the time of the report. There are no suspects at this time, and police were unsuccessful in their attempts to contact the homeowner. CV
