WPD Arrests Third Person for Monday Evening Home Invasion

A third person has been arrested in connection with a Monday night home invasion in Waterloo.

36-year old Cassandra Wright was arrested Tuesday for first-degree burglary, intimidation with a weapon and assault while participating in a felony. Her bond was set at $100,000 cash only.

Police said Wright was identified on video as one of four people who forced their way into a home in the 500 block of Western Ave. around 6 p.m. Monday. Two of the intruders were armed with firearms, and a shot was fired when a struggle ensued, according to police. The bullet grazed a resident’s face, police said.

Neighbors called police, and an officer was there within minutes. Wright and another person fled from the home, and two others intruders — 40-year old James Welton and 52-year old Larry Clayton — were trapped in the house and found hiding in the basement.

Bond for Welton and Clayton was also set at $100,000 each.
