September 24, 2013 - Oelwein Police Investigate Suspicious Subject

During the weekend, September 21st & 22nd, the Oelwein Police Department received a report of a male subject acting suspicious and randomly approaching citizens in various areas of the community. The reports were that the male subject was displaying unusual behavior and making unrealistic statements. Officers located the male subject, and upon talking with him, placed him in custody for his safety. The male subject had not committed any criminal violations and was therefore transported to an area medical facility for evaluation.
“Normally, these matters don’t make a press release as they are not criminal in nature. Unfortunately, due to speculation and Facebook statements that are not factual, this issue has many citizens concerned” states Chief Jeremy Logan. “Contrary to the social media buzz, this matter was dealt with as it developed and as officers had enough information to proceed with the listed action. Our officers, as the public would expect, properly assessed the situation throughout the investigation while still protecting this individuals rights. Once the matter evolved to where the officers were able to intervene, for the individuals safety as well as citizens peace of mind, they did so.”
