WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Two suspects wanted for questioning in the killing of a Waterloo man were arrested.

Jessica Ogden, 29, was arrested after Waterloo Police received a tip through Cedar Valley Crime Stoppers on Monday night that both she and Anthony Tronca, 43, might be at 305 Baltimore St. in Waterloo.

Believing Tronca to be armed and possibly dangerous, the Waterloo Police Tactical Team was brought out Monday night.

Ogden was arrested on an unrelated warrant. Tronca was not found Monday night.

Then, at 5:30 a.m. Tuesday, Tronca walked into the lobby of the Black Hawk County Sheriff's Office and surrendered to police, according to Waterloo Police.

Tronca was arrested on a felony warrant for intent to deliver methamphetamine while in possession of a firearm.

After questioning, both were transported to the Black Hawk County Jail.

Investigators have been looking for both Tronca and Ogden in connection with the disappearance of Ronald Randall, 44, of Waterloo.

Police found a body and believe it was Randall's body.

*****************************************************

Waterloo Police are searching for the owner of a local auto repair shop in connection with the disappearance of a Waterloo man and the discovery of a body near Highway 218. 

The Waterloo Police tactical unit aided in the search Monday night in a neighborhood near Baltimore and West 2nd Streets.

A missing person's report was opened on Ronald Dean Randall, 44, of Waterloo on Sept. 9.

A body Waterloo Police believe was Randall's was found in a wooded area south of Waterloo near Highway 218. An autopsy could not immediately determine it was Randall's without further testing.

The autopsy did show, however, that the cause of death was a homicide.

Police are looking for Anthony Tronca, 43, who owns AJT Auto Repair in Waterloo, as well as Jessica Ogden, 29, in connection with the investigation.

Tronca is already wanted on outstanding warrants for the sale and manufacturing of drugs as well as carrying weapons. Both are felony warrants.

According to the Black Hawk County Sheriff Office's website, Tronca is a white male, about 5 feet, 6 inches tall and 180 pounds. He has been on their Most Wanted page since Friday.

A $1,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of Tronca.

Anyone with information about either Tronca or Ogden is being asked to call Waterloo Police at 319-291-4340 or Crime Stoppers at 855-300-8477.
