    Re: Breaking news: Three officers shot pursuing bank robbery suspects near Maynard, I

    Wow, that's sad.

    They said they are looking for 2 suspects, but the high speed chase ended by Frederika. So were there more suspects than the ones that were in the car that ended by Frederika? A little confused by that.

    Re: Breaking news: Three officers shot pursuing bank robbery suspects near Maynard, I

    I work with one of those officers on an occasional basis, and I just heard they had the crash ended about a mile from my in-laws house, which would be consistent with that article.

    Crazy. Second bout of gun violence we've had in Northeast Iowa in the past month. Just a sad deal, and I really hope all those guys pull through.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Breaking news: Three officers shot pursuing bank robbery suspects near Maynard, I

    When I was a kid I witnessed a high speed chase that ended in a shootout in my street. I pulled into my driveway on my moped (yes, I had a moped, go ahead and make fun) and heard a roar coming down the street. Turned around and saw a car fly past, must have been going about 100mph. Two cop cars were directly behind. Me being young and stupid, rather than stay out of the way, I decided I was going to follow (because you know my moped capped at 30mph could keep up with this chase for sure.) Well there was kind of a nasty curve and the perp lost it and flipped his car several times. As I pulled up I heard a couple of pops, then I saw a state trooper fire two shots from his rifle. The perp threw his gun in the air and gave up. He had robbed the former Perpetual Savings Bank near Westdale Mall in CR.

    It sounds like the suspects fled into a wooded area after they crashed and have not been apprehended yet, law enforcement is searching the woods for them. Heard the suspects likely have automatic weapons.

    Here's a map of the area:
    Frederika, IA - Google Maps

    There's a quarry along 290th St, that I think they got out of the car at. They're likely in the wooded area along the Wapsi River. That wooded area is a nasty, tangled up swamp.

    Seems unlikely; semi-auto, probably. My guess is that someone frightened by mention of a black gun and therefore, it has to be automatic.

    Regardless, hope they catch the perps soon with no further damage done.

    I could be displaying some colossal ignorance here, but I thought you could modify semi-automatic weapons to make them automatic.

    Yeah I know the quarry you are talking about. And yes, the Wapsie is disgusting. Floated that river once with some friends, I won't make that mistake again.

    Hope your police buddy and all involved are ok.

    I spent a lot of time in that area when I was younger. Use to fish/duck hunt the Wapsie/Sweet Marsh. My granparents use to own the land where the big curve is going north from Tripoli to Sumner. I can't believe anything bad would ever happen in Frederika.

    I grew up in NEIA, seems to be more crime up there recently.

    Yikes, lots of friends (many with family farms) up in that area, hope they are all safe right now.

    Al_4_State, when and where was the other incident you mentioned?

    Somebody stopped in our office today and said they heard AK-47's being mentioned.. Could be just a rumor though, I won't be able to confirm until I can start my vigilante manhunt after work.
