A half-dozen men from Florida are facing numerous charges after an incident last night (Sunday) at a hotel in the Tama County town of Toledo. Officers got a 9-1-1 call about a man being chased by another man with a knife near the Budget Inn Motel. Officers responded and found one motel guest reported a wallet stolen from his room and witnesses identified several intoxicated men as suspects.
A room search found a box containing a half-pound of marijuana. Six men are being held for questioning in the case with charges pending that range from robbery to possession of a controlled substance to public intoxication.
