Driver goes off road onto track

SIOUX CITY | I wonder what its 400-meter time would be.  

Police say a female driver accidentally drove onto the North High School track Oct. 25. 

Sioux City Police Sgt. Jim Cunningham said the driver was in the parking lot of the school at 4200 Cheyenne Blvd. and accidentally went down a steep hill and broke through the fencing of the running track. 

The unidentified driver then reportedly did a few laps around "to find a way out," he said. 

The extent of the damages to the fence and car are unknown at this time.  

The incident is under investigation. Any charges are pending, Cunningham said. It was reported around 8:45 p.m.

2 charged with burglary 

SIOUX CITY | Ah, I heard the Midwest has great burglaries this time of year. 

Two California residents were arrested Oct. 24 on charges related to two recent burglaries in Sioux City.

Police believe Jerardo Ceja, 30, and Marianne Wiseman, 45, are also involved in a number of other burglaries throughout the Midwest. 

Early Oct. 24, Sioux City Police responded to a commercial alarm at the Half Moon Bar and Grill, 714 South Lewis Blvd., where a forced entry was discovered and items were removed. No suspects were located.

Three hours later at 10:33 a.m., police were called to a burglary in progress at Jim's Lounge, 4505 Stone Ave., and Ceja and Wiseman were apprehended.

Investigators believe the two are connected with numerous other burglaries throughout out the Midwest. 

Police ask if you have additional information on these alleged crimes or any other crimes call 712-258-TIPS.
