DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A Des Moines man, who police say skipped out of paying for a prosthetic leg, has been arrested.
Police say Rigoberto Zarazua-Rubio was arrested March 9 at an Omaha, Neb., apartment and charged with conspiracy to sell methamphetamine.
Pottawattamie County, Iowa, Sheriff Jeff Danker says Zarazua-Rubio was jailed on suspicion of being in the country illegally. That's when authorities discovered he was wanted on a warrant for the theft of the leg.
Police say Zarazua-Rubio was measured and fitted for the leg at a Des Moines business in 2005. They say he picked it up to test for a few hours but never returned to pay for it.
Police say the leg was confiscated and will be returned to the store.
