Search underway for Dunkerton student accused of having gun in bag

Posted: Updated:
DUNKERTON (KWWL) -

The search is on for 18-year old Dunkerton High School student, Maryo D. Lindsey.

Lindsey faces several charges, after a coach found a gun in Lindsey's bag, following the Raiders recent football game at Riceville.  

Cedar Valley Crimestoppers Thursday night released Lindsey's name and his photograph on the Crimestoppers Facebook page.

Lindsey is a convicted felon, so one of the charges against him is possession of a firearm as a felon. He also faces charges of carrying weapons on school grounds and possession of a controlled substance, marijuana.  The Black Hawk County Sheriff's Office received an arrest warrant on those charges Friday morning.

According to Dunkerton superintendent Jim Stanton, Lindsey is a Dunkerton resident and lives in the 5000 block of Dunkerton Road with his father.

Sources say Lindsey left his bag behind, after he was injured in the Riceville game and taken to a hospital to be examined. A coach, suspicious of a 'clunking' sound in the bag, discovered the gun inside. 

Because Lindsey remains a fugitive, the Dunkerton school remains in a 'Secure situation,' That means students are not allowed to leave school during the school day. 

Lindsey's Crimestoppers description says he has two tattoos on his upper arm that say "M" and "RIP Mamma Nelle." He also has tattoos on his right arm that say "L" and "Shanelle."


If you have information about his whereabouts call the Black Hawk County Sheriff's Office at 319-291-2515, or Cedar Valley Crimestoppers at 855-300-8477.

Callers can remain anonymous, but, anyone with information leading to an arrest is eligible for a cash reward.
