Iowa Department of Transportation officials said Wednesday afternoon that they are working to remove the lattice boom of a crane working at the Interstate 74 bridge site that bent and fell into the Mississippi River near the Moline shoreline.\u00a0

The incident happened around 8 a.m. and involved a crane located at a pier south of the navigation channel. IDOT said in a news release it is one of the smallest cranes on the I-74 River Bridge construction site.

\u201cThere were no injuries and all safety protocols are being followed,\u201d they said in the release.

IDOT has not said what caused the boom to fall, but said the crane is stable on the barge platform.\u00a0

The U.S. Coast Guard was alerted about the incident. Petty Officer Brandon Giles said the fallen boom did not impact navigation and there were no signs of water pollution from the incident.\u00a0

One source called it a \"catastrophic failure\" of the crane's boom.

Construction on the bridge began in July 2017 and is expected to be completed in 2020. The bridge is part of an interstate expansion between Middle Road in Bettendorf to Avenue of the Cities in Moline.

Two Davenport men will spend the rest of their lives in prison for a robbery and shooting that left 20-year-old Brady Tumlinson dead and his girlfriend with life-threatening injuries in September 2017.

Tristin Alderman, 23, and D\u2019marithe Culbreath, 21, both shackled and dressed in orange jail uniforms, were sentenced Thursday in two separate hearings in a Scott County courtroom packed with the family and friends of all three men.

Assistant Scott County Attorney Caleb Copley said at Alderman\u2019s hearing that what happened on Sept. 22, 2017, was \u201cunnecessary.\u201d

\u201cIt was cruel and downright violent,\u201d he said. \u201cIt was horrible what happened and, frankly, there should be two people that lost their lives that night, but thankfully at least one of them pulled through and is able to somewhat live a life beyond this.\u201d

Alderman and Culbreath were convicted of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit a forcible felony during a joint trial in December. The jury also found Alderman guilty of first-degree robbery and Culbreath guilty of second-degree robbery.

Prosecutors say the two men, along with co-defendant Nakita Wiseman and two other men, conspired to rob Tumlinson at his home in the 1300 block of South Nevada Avenue.

Tumlinson and his girlfriend, Jacey Grubbs, were asleep in their bedroom on the morning of Sept. 22, 2017, when the shooting began. Tumlison shot back in self-defense and struck Culbreath in the forehead, according to prosecutors.

Tumlinson was pronounced dead at the scene later that morning. Grubbs suffered life-threatening injuries but survived the shooting.

Police and prosecutors have said cell tower records place the men in the area at the time of the shooting, and a neighbor's surveillance video also shows five people running from Tumlinson's home.

Culbreath's DNA was found on a bullet fragment collected from the bedroom wall, on a gate at the home and on a pair of latex gloves that were found in the street.

He testified at trial that he did not have a gun that night and that it was another accomplice, whom he didn't name, that shot Tumlison after Culbreath was shot.

Prosecutors have called Alderman, formerly a close friend of Tumlinson, the mastermind behind the incident.\u00a0

Tumlinson\u2019s father, Rob Gilmore, said from the witness stand Thursday that he felt many different emotions when he learned of his son\u2019s death.

What got him through those feelings, he said, is his realization that his sons needed him to help them heal.

\u201cWe all have experienced loss that no words can convey,\u201d he said at Alderman\u2019s sentencing. \u201cI cannot sit here and tell you that you are forgiven nor to tell you that I feel sorry for you. I do however feel sorry for your family that will have also lost sons, grandchildren and memories that could have been made had you not chosen the life you did.\u201d

Tumlinson\u2019s mother, Kari Tumlinson, told Alderman that her son had loved him and that \u201cyou killed us all.\u201d

\u201cThem other boys, I\u2019m not even mad at,\u201d she said as she stood in the courtroom gallery. \u201cThey played their part, oh, believe me, they played their part. They got responsibly in it. They\u2019re going to do their time too. But you, you killed me.\u201d

Grubbs told Alderman, \"you ruined my life.\"

\"You ruined Brady\u2019s family's life. You got what you deserve. I hope you have a miserable life forever.\"

Speaking slowly, Alderman said he decided not to testify at trial because \u201cthere was no point because what I had to say had no meaning or would have had no impact on anything, because everybody had their mind made up.\u201d

Judge Mary Howes said she agreed with prosecutors that Alderman was the driving force of what happened at Tumlinson\u2019s home that night.

What disturbed the judge most, she said, is that he set it up and told the others to bring guns and that he left Tumlinson and Grubbs \u201cto bleed out there all night long.\u201d

\u201cThat is just really makes you an extremely dangerous person,\u201d she said. \u201cI don\u2019t think you have any remorse at all. I don\u2019t think you\u2019re capable of it. I think you think only of yourself and you belong exactly where you\u2019re going, which is to spend the rest of your natural life in prison.\u201d

Howes further sentenced him to up to 25 years in prison on the first-degree robbery, which will be served back-to-back with the life sentence. She also sentenced him to up to 10 years in prison on the conspiracy charge, which will run at the same time as the life sentence.

The judge additionally sentenced Culbreath to up to 10 years each on the second-degree robbery and conspiracy charges that will run at the same time as the life sentence.

She also ordered the men to pay $150,000 in restitution to Tumlinson\u2019s parents.

Copley said greed is what brought Culbreath into the case.

\u201cMr. Culbreath had a choice and he chose poorly, and he chose incorrectly, and there are consequences for your choices,\u201d he said.

Culbreath\u2019s attorney, Rebecca Ruggero, told the judge Thursday that he had prepared a \u201cvery thoughtful and appropriate\" statement but she had advised him to remain silent.

However, after trying to interject several times as the judge spoke, Culbreath directly addressed Tumlinson\u2019s mother.

\u201cI did not set your son up, and I did not kill your son,\u201d he said. \u201cAnd, I just want to tell you I\u2019m sorry, and Jacey, I\u2019m sorry to you too.\u201d

Wiseman, 22, of Bettendorf, pleaded guilty to first-degree burglary and second-degree robbery and was sentenced in December to up to 35 years in prison.

The two other men have not been charged as of Thursday.

A Wilton, Iowa, man who admitted to federal authorities he has been viewing child pornography for about 10 years on various internet platforms and who had more than 1,000 images of child pornography on his cellular phone, was arrested Monday by FBI agents.

Adam Levi Jones Martin, 27, was being held Tuesday night in the custody of the U.S. Marshals.

Agents did not wait for the man\u2019s electronic devices to undergo a forensic examination before taking him into custody but arrested him on the spot after interviewing him and finding the images on his cell phone.

Martin lives with his elderly mother and 10-year-old niece, whom he supports, according to federal court records.

According to the affidavit in support of the criminal complaint filed by the FBI, on Aug. 2 and then on Oct. 11, Dropbox submitted CyberTipline reports to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children based on the analysis of records that indicated Dropbox account holder Adam Jones had uploaded and possessed more than 1,000 files of child pornography in the form of images and videos.

The files were uploaded to Dropbox in March 2017 and May 2017.

From August through September authorities issues subpoenas to Dropbox, Google, Aureon Network Services and Verizon Wireless regarding Martin\u2019s accounts.

Videos and images from the CyberTipline were sent to the FBI for review. Agents saw more than 1,000 images of child pornography that depicted children, boys and girls, engaged in sexual acts with other children and with adults, according to the affidavit.

The FBI also reviewed about 100 videos provided from the CyberTipline which showed children from 3-months-old to about 13-years-old engaged in various forms of sexual activity, including acts with other children and with adults, as well as videos involving bestiality, according to the affidavit.

Agents searched Martin\u2019s home in Wilton Monday. He lives with his elderly mother and 10-year-old niece, whom he supports.

According to the affidavit, Martin provided agents with the pass codes to all of his electronic devices.

A preview of each electronic device by FBI examiners determined there were large amounts of child pornography. Specifically, a cell phone owned by Martin contained more than 1,000 images of child pornography, which included images of children under the age of 12, with the youngest being an infant. The children were all engaged in various sex acts.

According to the affidavit, Martin admitted to FBI agents that he had been viewing child pornography for about 10 years and admitted to having more than 1,000 images of child pornography on his cell phone.

Martin is due in U.S. District Court, Davenport, at 12:45 p.m. Wednesday for a preliminary hearing and a detention hearing.

The front door at 2426 N. Michigan Ave., stands slightly ajar. Photos adorn\u00a0 the wall of the smallish home in a quiet portion of Davenport's northwest corridor.

Snow falls, covering the downed tree branches in the front yard. A light at the home's back door shines. An empty blue cooler sits next to the garage.

At 1:06 a.m. Sunday, police were summoned to the home where they would find one person dead from a gunshot wound.

\"We heard nothing until the eight squad cars arrived,'' said Carol Ramsey, who lives one door north of the house where the alleged shooting took place. \"It's a quiet neighborhood; I certainly didn't expect this.''

Accident? Intentional? No one at this point, can say.

Ramsey says she believes a mother, two young girls and two teenage males live in the rented home.\u00a0 According to assessor's records of Scott County, the home is owned by an Eldridge couple.\u00a0

\"We knew the mother only that she would always wave to us when she was coming and going,'' Ramsey, a retired Oscar Mayer employee, said. \"Nothing that would make you think something could happen like this. My teenage granddaughter had talked occasionally with the two boys.''

\u00a0Davenport Police said it is\u00a0 continuing to investigate and asked that anyone with information to call 563-326-6125 or submit an anonymous tip via the app, CityConnect Davenport IA.

A 38-year-old Bettendorf man has been arrested on heroin distribution charges in connection with the overdose death of another man April 7.

Michael Randy Spencer, of 2750 Tech Dr., Apt. 207, is charged with one count of distribution of a controlled substance-heroin, a Class C felony under Iowa law that carries a prison sentence of up to 10 years.

Spencer also is charged with one count of conspiracy, a Class D felony that carries a prison sentence of up to five years.

According to the arrest affidavit filed by Bettendorf Police Sgt. Doug Scott, on April 7, Spencer made up two syringes of heroin that he had purchased with money given to him by Tyler Ekstrand.

Ekstrand could not find a vein to inject the heroin so Spencer offered to inject the syringe into him. Spencer then used the syringe to inject the heroin into Ekstrand\u2019s hand.

A short time later, Ekstrand, who was 23 at the time, overdosed and died on the floor of Spencer\u2019s apartment.

Spencer was arrested Monday. He was being held Tuesday night in the Scott County Jail on $10,000 bond, cash or surety.

Federal authorities have taken over similar local cases involving the crime of possession with the intent to deliver heroin causing death.

A conviction at the federal level of possession with the intent to deliver heroin causing death carries a mandatory minimum prison sentence of 20 years. There is no parole in the federal system.

DAVENPORT - Ivory Justice and Christine Fay stood in the winter's night, snow falling around them. He in a sweatshirt and sweatpants. She in the only jacket she could grab in a second's notice.

The two, without shelter, were told a Red Cross volunteer would soon be by to assist. The pair was just grateful to be safe.

\"We were told to look for the Red Cross,'' said Justice, after his and Fay's third floor apartment was damaged severely by fire Sunday night.

The two, living in the B (middle) Complex of Davenport's Breckenridge Apartments, 4323 N. Division St., escaped injury after fire swept through the middle building of the three-building complex. \"We are OK, we just need to get situated and find out what's next.''

According to Justice, the fire that displaced several people living in the complex, began in Apartment 304 of the B Complex, next door to he and Fay. The fire was reported to authorities at 6:33 p.m.

\"I heard a smoke alarm -- glad of those -- in the apartment next door (304),'' Justice said. \"And as I got up and opened the door to get out, I got hit with nothing but smoke. I reached for her (Fay) and we crawled our way out. I was literally knocked to the floor by the smoke.''

Justice also lauded Davenport Fire and Rescue for its work.

\"They were on it in a hurry,'' he said. \"Just thank the Good Lord everyone is safe.\"

Fay said the timing was just right for them to escape harm. As of Sunday, no serious injuries were reported from the fire that closed traffic on North Division for much of the evening.

\"If we don't hear the (smoke) alarms and we wait, you never know what would have happened,'' she said. \"I don't know what's next, but we are OK.''

A Davenport doctor who has been free for 18 months while awaiting sentencing on multiple federal counts of health care fraud was taken into custody Thursday by federal officers for violating the conditions of his release.

Paul Matthew Bolger, 47, was held Thursday night in the custody of the U.S. Marshals. He is scheduled to appear Friday in U.S. District Court, Davenport, for a pretrial release revocation hearing.

According to U.S. District Court documents, federal agents searched Bolger\u2019s businesses and vehicles Tuesday. The probable cause for the search warrants was based on three controlled transactions between a government confidential source and Bolger.

Bolger prescribed phentermine, an amphetamine-like medicine used for weight loss, according to court documents. Phentermine is a schedule IV controlled substance.

Two of the transactions occurred in Burlington, and one occurred in Iowa City.

According to court documents, Bolger does not have a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration registration to dispense controlled substances at any other location in Iowa except for his primary practice at 5510 Utica Ridge Road, Suite 300, Davenport.

Bolger appeared Thursday in U.S. District Court with his attorney, Jeff Lang. A final hearing on the revocation is scheduled for Friday at 3 p.m.

On August 22, 2017, Bolger pleaded guilty to 18 counts of making false statements relating to health care matters.

During February through May of 2015, Bolger, who was licensed to practice in Delaware, Georgia, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, New Mexico and Ohio entered into an agreement with another person who would send Bolger patient intake forms and prescription forms. Bolger would then sign the prescription forms without having talked to most of the patients. No patients or intake forms were being screened by a medical professional prior to the forms being sent to Bolger.

Bolger was paid $50 to sign a prescription form.

The prescriptions were then filled by Patient Care America Pharmacy in Florida, and Haoeyou Pharmacy or its designee in California.

The pharmacies then billed Tricare, a health insurance program of the U.S. Department of Defense serving current and retired military personnel and their dependents worldwide.

Bolger also pleaded guilty to five counts that he mis-branded at least five prescriptions for patients residing in Alabama, a state in which he was not licensed.

The prescriptions were for flurbiprofen and gabapentin in the form of topical pain cream, but contained no such substances.

In total, Bolger\u2019s participation in the scheme cost Tricare about $681,000, according to federal court documents.

For making false statements, he faces a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine, on each count. A mandatory special assessment of $100 per count must be imposed.

For the mis-branding of the prescriptions he faces a prison sentence of one year and a fine of $100,000 on each count. A mandatory $25 assessment per count must be imposed.

To date, Bolger has agreed to pay $10,000 in restitution to Tricare.
