An investigation by Marshall County Sheriff's Deputies resulted in the arrests of two local men for theft.

February 22, 2010

Marshall County - During the early morning hours of Monday, February 22, 2010, a Marshall County Deputy stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation near 18th Ave. and Iowa Ave. East, in Marshalltown. The driver was cited for operating without having vehicle insurance. The deputy noted what appeared to be several new compound hunting bows in the vehicle at that time. The vehicle was impounded, and the driver was released at that time.

The ensuing investigation involved an inquiry to all Iowa agencies regarding any recent thefts of bows, with a response coming from the Waterloo Police Department. After further information was obtained, a search warrant was secured for the impounded vehicle and the owner's residence.

Sheriff's Deputies and officers from the Marshalltown Police Department did serve the warrant at 512 E. Main St., Apt. #2, Marshalltown, later that morning. The search resulted in the seizure of another compound bow and other evidence, from the residence, as well as the arrests of the two suspects. The bows from the impounded vehicle were also secured.


Bajro Saric, age 50, of 512 E. Main St. Marshalltown (Bajro Saric was the driver of the vehicle from the earlier traffic stop )


Darko Saric, age 20, also of 512 E. Main St., Marshalltown.

Both men were charged with Theft 2nd degree, for exercising control over stolen property.

Theft 2nd Degree is a Class D Felony, punishable by a maximum of 5 years in prison and/or a fine of not less than $750.00 but not more than $7,500.00.

Both men were jailed on $5,000.00 bond, pending initial appearances in court.

The investigation is continuing.
