Cedar Falls Man Caught with Armful of Purses

A Cedar Falls man has been charged with burglary, after police say he broke into an apartment  in the 600 block of West 5th Street in Waterloo Wednesday morning and stole a collection of purses from the sleeping resident.

Officers say they caught 34-year old Tim Armenta “red-handed,” and took him to the Black Hawk County Jail.  His bond was set at $25,000.

Armenta was also held on a pre-trial release violation, in connection with the December theft of merchandise from Kohl’s in Cedar Falls.    When police caught up with him after that incident, they found some crystal meth, marijuana and prescription pills on him.
