Good Samaritan Becomes Robbery Victim, LIVINGSTON, January 7, 2010 - On December 26, 2009, the Polk County Sheriff's Office received a call from 239 Talpa Street in the C-Prat subdivision. The call was in reference to robbery. Deputy Brent Foster was dispatched to the residence to speak with the victim (whose name is being withheld). The victim informed Deputy Foster that the wrongdoers were two white females that had asked to borrow a sweater and some money. The victim obliged their request and while looking in the closet for a spare sweater, the ne'er-do-wells grabbed her wallet from her back pocket and attempted to run. The victim reacted quickly enough to grab one of the robbers by the shirt, ripping it off, but both females managed to get out of the house and get into a dark colored truck (being driven by a white male) and fled the scene.
As Deputy Foster was taking the report, Officer Kevin Blackburn with the Livingston Police Department reported that he had stopped the suspect vehicle at the American Legion Hall in Livingston. Deputy Foster took the victim to the American Legion Hall where she positively identified both females and the male suspects. Detective Richard Delaney with the Polk County Sheriff's Office interviewed both the complainant and the suspects and the following charges were filed on the robbery suspects:
Danita Kimberlin: Robbery
Julie Jordan: Robbery
David Stephens: Traffic Charges
