March 5, 2016

  • A caller said she would be moving a shed on Monday, and her “landlord had told her that he wanted law enforcement there when the shed was moved.” She said the “landlord requested she no longer be on their property unless an officer is with her.” She said the shed “will be moved to her sister’s house, and they have a permit to do so.” An officer responded and advised how best to proceed.
  • A caller said he needed help getting up. He said he lived in Madison County, and the call was transferred to the Madison County Sheriff’s office. About 30 minutes later, a second caller said the original caller lives at the Perry Lutheran Home Spring Valley Campus but mistakenly believes he is in his Madison County home. Officers responded and confirmed the welfare of the original caller.
  • A caller said all the streetlights along Willis Avenue between ninth and 14th streets were out. Officers responded and contacted Alliant Energy. A representative from Alliant Energy said “the contractor was aware it was down and had not informed anyone.” He said the lights would be out until Monday “due to some wiring.”
  • The Dallas County Sheriff’s office transferred a 911 call regarding a possible domestic disturbance in Perry. Officers responded and “learned it was a verbal argument over car keys and porn.”

  • A caller said someone drove through the front window of a local retail store. Officers responded and found a Ford Mustang, driven by Lal Vunga, 31, 3710 57th St., Des Moines, struck the building when the driver “accidentally pushed the accelerator instead of the brake pedal.”
  • A staff member at the Dallas County Hospital emergency room called and said a woman “was being seen for injuries to hand and arm due to punching a window,” and her friends “convinced her to go” away from the hospital. The caller was “concerned due to medications given and alcohol level.” Officers responded but were unable to locate the injured woman.

*A criminal charge is merely an accusation, and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
