On May 10, 2020 Officers assigned to the Violent Crime Apprehension Team (VCAT) stopped a vehicle for a moving violation in the area of W. 5th St. and Grant Ave. Officers observed a handgun in plain view and detained the four occupants in the vehicle. A subsequent search of the vehicle revealed three additional handguns located on or around the occupants for a total of four handguns seized. One of the firearms returned stolen from a burglary that occurred in Oelwein, IA in 1989. The following subjects were arrested:
