BOONE, Iowa—Through the month of October, Boone Police Chief Bill Skare reported increases in several different categories. Reported assaults and intimidation increased slightly over 2010 while burglary and theft reports went up by almost one-third. Skare noted that stolen property value was nearly $44,000 compared to the nearly $13,000 reported last October. Criminal mischief calls were pretty close to last year’s numbers and the cost of the damage was about half reported in 2010.
