Waterloo Police have arrested a second person in connection with the burglary and armed robbery incident that took place at 119 Conger Street on Wednesday, November 18, 2009 around 11 am.
When officers arrived at the scene several persons fled from the residence. One of the fleeing suspects, later identified as 18-year-old Corey Damone Crawley, got in a vehicle that was parked in the 100 block of Center Street. Responding officers surrounded Crawley in their patrol cars in an attempt to detain him. Crawley then sped backwards in his car, ramming into one of the occupied patrol cars that was sitting behind him. As he attempted to flee, Waterloo Police officer Kristen Loney, a 10-year veteran, who was outside of her patrol car at the time, fired several rounds into his vehicle striking Crawley. Crawley was transported to Allen Hospital where he was admitted for treatment of his wounds and eventually released to police custody on November 20th.
Crawley, of 305 Anthony Street in Waterloo, has been charged with robbery in the first degree, burglary in the first degree, possession with intent to deliver marijuana, assault on a peace officer (D felony) and criminal mischief in the second degree. Crawley is being held in the Black Hawk County Jail on $225,000.00 bond.
The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation and the Waterloo Police Department conducted the investigation into this incident. The Black Hawk County Sheriff's Office, the Iowa State Patrol and the Iowa Department of Natural Resources assisted as well. Per Department policy, Officer Loney was placed on administrative leave pending further investigation into this incident.
This is an ongoing investigation and no more information will be released at this time.
