Police in Red Oak report one person was arrested following an attempted burglary, Wednesday morning. Officials say 29-year-old Kirby David Stoneking, of Red Oak, was arrested on attempted burglary, possession of burglary tools, interference with official acts, possession of marijuana and entering contraband into a jail facility, charges. Stoneking was taken into custody after police were called to the 500 block of East Reed Street for a possible burglary in progress. Upon arrival, officers observed a man allegedly attempting to break into a business. Police say the man fled on foot behind the business after officers activated their emergency lights. Officers then chased the suspect on foot and several times ordered him to stop. They caught up with Stoneking in the 400 block of North 5th Street, and took him into custody.
As they were booking him into the Montgomery County Jail, officers discovered Stoneking had allegedly concealed a plastic bag containing marijuana. The man was being held in the jail on $5,000 cash bond.
ADEL, Iowa (AP) – Dallas County voters have said no to a Board of Supervisors’ plan for a new county administration building and jail. A $16.9 million bond referendum was rejected by about 68 percent of voters on Tuesday. The money would have helped the county pay the $22 million total price for the proposed 91,000-square-foot building on county-owned land in east Adel.
In other special elections Tuesday, more than 73 percent of Indianola voters rejected a proposal to move from a mayor-council form to a manager-council-at-large form of government. And in Greene County, more than 75 percent of voters approved a proposal to allow gambling. Developers want to build a $35 million casino and entertainment complex near Jefferson.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Floppy is going to be Gov. Terry Branstad’s companion at the Iowa State Fair. The governor’s office announced Tuesday the beagle puppet made famous by his 30-year-run on Des Moines TV station WHO will go on display in Branstad’s state fair booth in the Varied Industries Building. The fair begins Thursday. The puppet starred on “The Floppy Show” and came to life through the ventriloquism of Duane Ellett.
After Ellett died in 1987, his family donated Floppy and other puppets to the State Historical Society. Floppy was displayed from 1994 until earlier this year, when the puppet was removed to the outrage of his fans. After the fair, Floppy will be sent to Omaha, Neb., for repairs at the Gerald R. Ford Conservation Center, then returned the State Historical Museum.
