Hotel Muscatine Robbery Arrest

Muscatine County Attorney

One day after an armed robbery in Muscatine, police made an arrest. 35 year old Timothy Wadden was taken into custody Monday night following the hold-up Sunday night at the Hotel Muscatine on North Highway 61.

County Attorney Alan Ostergren credits local residents and social media for the quick arrest - police posted information about the robbery on Facebook, and soon afterwards tips started pouring in.

Wadden is being held for 750,000 dollars bond.
  First degree robbery is punishable by up to 25 years in prison. 

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
