  • Suspect involved in CB Hotel Robbery Arrested

    (Council Bluffs) A Council Bluffs man is in custody following an armed robbery at a Council Bluffs hotel early Saturday morning.


    The Council Bluffs Police Department was called to the Days Inn Motel at 3208 South 7th Street at 12:52 a.m.. Their investigation showed the suspect entered the lobby area and produced a semi auto hand gun pointing it at the clerk on duty. The suspect then reached over the counter removing an undetermined amount of cash from the register and then fled on foot.


    The suspect was observed by the clerk getting into a white SUV with no license plate information. A uniform officer in the area spotted this vehicle. Officers attempted to stop this vehicle in the area of 19th Avenue and South Expressway in which a vehicle pursuit ensued. Officers pursued this vehicle to the dead end area of the 1200 block of 19th Ave with the suspect throwing cash and clothing out of the car window.


    The suspect then rammed a policed cruiser and the pursuit continued to the area of the 2700 block of South 6th Street. The suspect then fled of foot, leaving the vehicle behind. 


    At 1:11 a.m., nearly 30 minutes after the robbery, the 911 center received a call

    from a female subject stating that her husband had just come home and wanted to report that he had been assaulted and his 2011 White Kia Sorrento had been stolen in the area of the Casey's General Sore at 23rd Avenue and South Expressway. Uniform officers responded to the residence where he was transported to the Criminal Investigation Division to be interviewed. It was determined through investigation that this subject was involved in the robbery and assault of a peach officer.


    45-year-old Alonzo M. Wright, of Council Bluffs, was booked in to the Pottawatamie County Corrections on Robbery 1st, Assault on a Peace Officer, and Eluding charges.


    The investigation is ongoing.

    The game started off close with both teams exchanging leads. Red Oak tied the game at 14-14 on Walker’s layup as time expired in the first quarter. However, the complexion of the game changed quickly after that.

    Red Oak’s 6-2 senior post Grace Blomstedt added 10-points, and Angela Mahoney pitched in 8.


    Skye Thompson led Atlantic with 15-points and Stephanie Sandbothe scored 12.


    Atlantic falls to 6-12 on the season. The Tigers extend their record to 14-4.
