Police apprehend robbery suspect

On March 21, at 1137 AM the Iowa City Police Department (ICPD) was dispatched to 955 Mormon Trek Boulevard to a report of a robbery.  According to the victim, a male suspect displayed a knife, demanded cash, and then fled the area in an unknown direction of travel.  Multiple officers responded to the area whereupon a suspect was located that matched the description provided by the victim.  After a brief foot pursuit, the suspect was taken into custody.  There were no injuries reported during this incident.  

Over the course of subsequent investigation, a seventeen-year-old male was charged with Robbery in the First Degree.  The suspect was then transported to the Linn County Juvenile Detention center without incident. 

The ICPD was assisted in this investigation by the University Heights Police Department.   

As with any criminal case, a charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.


Who has the best fast food fish sandwich? They are listed here from worst to first - Bachelor on the Cheap

20180326_184044By Mike Thayer

Burgers, chicken nuggets, pizza, tacos......

What are you supposed to eat when none of the above sounds good?

A crispy fish sandwich of course!

But which fast food joint makes the best fish sandwich? 

In the name of 'food science' (a'hem, cough), I have sampled fish sandwiches from all the national fast food chains I have access to in my neck of the woods that have a fish sandwich on their menu.  Which restaurant and their version of a crispy fish sandwich will get top honors?

I went through the restaurant list, one meal at a time.....  What?  I ate nothing but fish sandwiches for lunch AND dinner, a total of 9 meals? 

Like I said, done in the name of 'food science'......

Here is "The List" of fast food joints offering fish sandwiches, from worst to first:
