On January 17th, Shaukim Uriah Redd, age 30, of Fort Madison, was taken into custody for his involvement in the November 7th Armed Robbery at Hardee’s at 1431 Avenue H. His identity as the perpetrator was established by physical evidence recovered by detectives at the scene. Redd’s arrest followed a traffic stop in connection with a report of an unrelated theft of liquor that had just occurred from a convenience store.
In relation to the earlier robbery, criminal charges levied against Redd included: Robbery in the
1st degree (class B felony), Burglary in the 1st degree (class B felony), and Going Armed with
Intent (class d felony). Redd had also been sought on escape warrants, and four counts of Theft (aggravated misdemeanors) for separate theft investigations being handled by the police department. The investigation into Redd’s activities is ongoing, and additional charges may be filed.
Redd was transported to the Lee County Jail and incarcerated pending an initial court appearance. The public is reminded that persons charged with crimes are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
