Suspect Arrested for Robbery

CEDAR RAPIDS, IA – Cortez Jacobi Riggins, Jr., DOB/04-05-2002, age 18, of Ely, Iowa, was arrested for Robbery-2nd Degree on Tuesday, October 20.  At approximately 10:32 p.m. on October 20, a 17-year old male met with Riggins for an arranged sale of a belt for $150.  The arrangement had been made online and the parties agreed to meet in a school parking lot. 

They met in a parking lot at Kennedy High School, 4545 Wenig Road NE.  During the meeting, Riggins allegedly placed the victim in fear of serious injury, took the belt, and did not pay for the item.  The suspect lifted his shirt in a manner that led the victim to believe the suspect had a gun.  The suspect drove off from the parking lot.

A description of the suspect vehicle was broadcast to police officers and it was located a short time later by officers.  A traffic stop was initiated at 29th Street and Edgewood Road NW.  The driver of the vehicle was subsequently identified as the robbery suspect.  The Gucci brand belt belonging to the victim was inside the suspect’s vehicle. 

Riggins was arrested for robbery and for a warrant for Failure to Appear-Initial Appearance for Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.  He was transported to the Linn County Jail.

Don’t trash your pumpkins, compost them!

A graphic saying residents should compost their pumpkins.

When your Halloween pumpkin begins to decay and the holiday is over, remember to toss your jack-o'-lantern in your yard waste container, not in your trash!

The City of Iowa City’s organics (yard and food waste) program accepts pumpkins. Here's the proper way to compost your pumpkins or seasonal gourds through the City:

  • Remove any candles or lights from inside your pumpkin
  • Place it in your yellow-lid organics cart, or 20-35 gallon size organics/yard waste container, or in a paper yard waste bag.
  • Set container at the curb for collection on your normal service day. Limit 50 pounds per 20-25 gallon cart or yard waste bag; 250 pound limit for 95-gallon carts. 

Residents who do not receive curbside services can bring their pumpkins, at no cost, to the City's compost facility located at the Iowa City Landfill and Recycling Center, 3900 Hebl Ave SW.
