CRIME BLOTTER

New Richmond News - They were supposed to get married in Las Vegas on New Year's Eve, but the groom-to-be is now thought to be on the island of Maui in Hawaii…maybe with another woman.

According to Investigator Doug Ducklow of the Pierce County Sheriff's Department, Raymond Jackson, 40, of Eagan, Minn., met the Diamond Bluff woman at Prescott Days in September. He then moved into her home a couple of days before Thanksgiving. The two then set their Las Vegas wedding date.

But on Dec. 23 Ducklow said Jackson told the woman he had a business meeting in Grand Forks, N. D., and left. Instead of buying a ticket for Grand Forks, Jackson allegedly used the woman's credit card to buy a one-way ticket to Maui.

That same day the woman discovered the charge on her credit card and contacted Frontier Airlines who informed her of the one-way ticket. She then contacted the sheriff's department. . . "I believe he went over there to meet another woman," Ducklow said.

Along with the credit card information and racking up approximately $1,700 in charges, Jackson also allegedly took the woman's laptop computer, her cell phone, a pearl necklace and other items totaling approximately $7,600. He also allegedly took the woman's diamond engagement ring.

Des Moines Register - A criminal mischief report submitted to Des Moines police on Sunday by a manager with Motel 6 at 4817 Fleur Drive said the bathroom door was "shredded.". . . A police officer said, "It was as if someone used it as a punching bag. Successfully." . . . A police report says, "The double lamp was taken from the wall, the TV had been thrown to the floor. . . One could literally see through the door." An hour before police arrived on the scene to investigate someone called and spoke with the manager. He claimed he was not present when the damage was done but he said he would pay for all repairs. "I don't want any trouble," he said
