Charges dismissed against Waterloo woman
Robbery charges against a Waterloo woman have been dismissed without prejudice.
Chief Deputy Burt Tecklenburg of the Marshalltown Sheriff's Office said the woman, Allison Miller, 26, allegedly unlawfully entered a home on the 2000 Block of 140th Street in Albion, on or about Dec. 25, 2011.
When the woman living there discovered Miller and another woman in her home, Tecklenburg said, the duo fled, knocking her over.
"That's why it's charged as a robbery," Tecklenburg said.
Police picked Miller up on the warrant in another county and jailed her in Marshall County Tuesday before transferring her to Tama County,Tecklenburg said.
Miller has pending charges in Tama and Blackhawk County for similar charges, he added.
Tecklenburg said the case is still under investigation, but that since the case was dismissed without prejudice, it means they can file it again.
