Two men charged with weapons charges
Police charged two men with unlawful possession of a 9 MM pistol and a civilian assault rifle Tuesday.
An overnight security guard at an abandoned factory on the 600 block of South 12th Avenue spotted two cars loitering on the property around 2:30 a.m. and called the police, said Capt. Mike Hanken of the Marshalltown Police Department.
Police were able to identify two of the men as William Landgrebe, 25 of Eddyville, and Hector Garcia, 21 of Ottumwa, when the officer pulled over the duo's car on the 500 block of E. South Street.
The other unidentified man was questioned and released.
Following question, police searched Landgrebe's vehicle and found the loaded guns along with some marijuana in a console and trunk, Hanken said.
Hanken said the guns were not registered to either of the men, which lead to the aggravated misdemeanor charges.
No warrants exist on the weapons indicating that they had been stolen or used in another crime, but results on who the guns are registered to could take up to three weeks to come back from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, he said.
Drive off ends with weapon charge
A simple gas drive-off ended in a man being arrested for unlawful possession of a weapon Tuesday night.
Police pulled over Pedro Guadiana, 18, on the corner of First Avenue and North Street just after 11:30 p.m. for driving off with $60 worth of gas from Kum & Go on East Main Street.
Upon searching the car, police found a stun gun disguised as a cell phone.
Guadiana's passenger, Gustavo Diaz, 19, is charged with providing police with false information when he told the arresting officer a false name, a simple misdemeanor.
Guadiana faces three aggravated misdemeanors for the weapon possession, fifth-degree theft and driving while barred.
