ATF Organizes Fake Robbery to Snag Iowa Men

Five Des Moines men arrested

|


Federal investigators say five Des Moines men who believed they were ready to execute a high-stakes drug robbery were arrested after a months-long sting by undercover agents.

The men were arrested last week in a Hy-Vee parking lot, shortly before they believed they were going to rob a house where 24 pounds of cocaine was stored.
