Two Waukee Men Believed To Have Fired 10 Shots At Group Of People In Jefferson Sunday In Custody

Two Waukee men wanted in connection to a series of shots fired in Jefferson Sunday night have been arrested. Nineteen-year-old Adam James Stilson was arrested by the Jefferson Police Department with the assistance of the Polk City Police Department at approximately 12:30 p.m. Monday. Nineteen-year-old Jake Allen Cretsinger was arrested at approximately 2:45 p.m. in Waukee by the Waukee Police Department. Both are charged with intimidation with a dangerous weapon, a class C felony, first degree harassment, third degree criminal mischief and reckless use of a firearm, all aggravated misdemeanors. They also face a single charge of disorderly conduct, a simple misdemeanor. They are both being held in the Greene County jail on a $10,000 bond each. The charges stem from an incident at approximately 9:25 p.m. in the 100 block of South Pinet Street. According to police, an altercation started between two men transporting a woman from Coon Rapids to Jefferson and a group of people at 507 West Lincoln Way St. The argument escalated, and a male passenger pointed a 9mm pistol at the group. He fired five rounds into the air before the vehicle fled southbound on South Walnut Street. The man fired five additional rounds at the group as the vehicle sped away. Authorities believe the weapon to be stolen as they have learned the Coon Rapids Police Department received theft reports for a 9mm pistol shortly before the incident occurred. No injuries were reported from the shots, but a vehicle parked in the area had both driver’s side tires flattened by the rounds.
