Iowa Bacon Board Offers Reward Leading to Capture of Bacon Bandit
Anyone with information is urged to contact the Des Moines Police Department
Sometime between 9 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. on Monday, April 22 a person broke into a Des Moines home on the 900 block of 59th Street and reportedly stole jewelry, electronics and bacon. In response to the crime, Brooks Reynolds, Chairman of the Iowa Bacon Board, is offering four VIP Passes to the 7th Annual Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival for information leading to the arrest and indictment of the person or people responsible for the robbery.
“Words cannot describe the shock and fear this community has suffered over the burglary. The theft of electronics and jewelry is terrible. But, taking someone’s bacon? That’s just over the line. The criminals responsible must be caught, convicted and pay the price for this heinous crime,” Reynolds said. “It is my hope and expectation that this reward will help convince those who may be holding onto important information to come forward.”
To ease the victim’s pain and suffering, the Iowa Bacon Board and Eden Farms will provide them with 15 lbs of Eden Farms Bacon and two tickets to the 7th Annual Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival.
