A man who triggered an Amber Alert in Colorado ended up in Iowa were he was arrested. The state of Colorado put out the alert, after a woman in the town of Lafayette told authorities her boyfriend had come to her house and assaulted her, then took off with their 14-month-old son. The man was identified as Jacub Dentler and police back in Colorado say they’re certain he heard the Amber Alert had been issued naming him. Dentler had headed for Iowa, where he has relatives, and upon arriving in Des Moines, he dropped the child off safely at an uncle’s home, then said he’d turn himself in once he’d visited some acquaintances. Polk County authorities have now taken him into custody and it remains to be seen whether Dentler will be charged in Iowa or sent back to Colorado to face kidnapping or other charges.
