4 minors charged in weekend Waterloo burglary

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) - A carful of teenagers was taken into custody after police say they burglarized a Waterloo residence Saturday night.

Police charged four minors with burglary and carrying weapons after pulling their vehicle over for an unspecified "equipment violation," according to Sgt. Matt McGeough.

Officers with the Violent Crime Apprehension Team then smelled marijuana and searched the vehicle, where they found "a quantity" of the drug along with a loaded .22-caliber Ruger handgun and a loaded .22-caliber revolver, according to the police report.

Police said the Ruger handgun was reported stolen during a burglary on the 120 block of Easton Ave. earlier in the evening. Officers also recovered other property allegedly stolen from the burglary.

Dacarious Burkett, 15; Robert Luckie, 15; Mariquese Clark, 14; and Danzell Washington, 15; all of Waterloo, were charged with third-degree burglary and carrying weapons.

Luckie and Washington were additionally charged with possession of marijuana.

The driver of the vehicle, Ashley Woodman, 16, was charged with carrying weapons and possession of marijuana.

Burkett, Luckie, Clark and Washington were then transported to the Juvenile Detention Center.

Police say the four burglarized the residence by cutting a window screen and entering through an unsecured window.
