Man identified in local theft investigation


A man whose identify had been in question by the Marshalltown Police Department in a recent theft investigation has been identified, Capt. Chris Jones of the MPD said in an email to the Times-Republican Monday the man’s identify had been confirmed. However, Jones said in a subsequent email “it was too early in the investigation to release the individual’s name.” The person was last seen in the convenience store approximately 8:40 p.m., Aug. 5. Earlier Monday, the MPD had requested the public’s help identifying the individual.
