Posted on 05 November 2012 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—Boone County Sheriff Ron Fehr says the Sheriff’s Department executed search warrants last Friday that led to the arrest of three men and the recovery of items taken during a home invasion near Madrid on October 26th.  Fehr says the Sheriff’s Department first executed a search warrant at a Des Moines address.  Deputies were assisted by Des Moines Police and the Des Moines Fugitive Task Force.  Items from the Home Invasion were recovered and 45-year old Robert McFadden was charged with First Degree Robbery.  A second warrant was then issued and executed at an Urbandale address.  Deputies were assisted by Urbandale Police and the Joint Multijurisdictional Task Force.  42-year old Erich Reintz was taken into custody and was charged with Robbery in the 2nd Degree.  Fehr says once again, a number of items from the Home Invasion were recovered.  Earlier last week, Fehr says deputies forwarded information to Des Moines Police identifying Scott Mabrier as a suspect in the case.  Des Moines Police did take Mabrier into custody on a warrant for Parole Violation.  During his arrest, coins taken during the October Home Invasion were also recovered.  Fehr says the investigation is continuing, but he’s extremely pleased that his Department was able to collect the evidence and quickly identify suspects and make the arrests in the case.  Fehr says a weapon was used during the Home Invasion and he said the three are very dangerous people.  He said Boone County Investigators did an excellent job coordinating the agencies involved and in recovering much of what was taken during the incident, October 26th.  The incident near Madrid was reported about 9:00 AM on Friday, October 26th after three men using a fire arm entered the home in the 1500 area of Q Avenue.  The victim resisted and fought with a suspect.  Fehr says eventually the victim was subdued and was zip tied and duct taped while the suspects stole a coin collection valued a several thousand dollars.
