Prison Guard Faces Robbery Charges
CASCADE (CBS 2/FOX 28) --
An Eastern Iowa prison guard is charged with first degree robbery.
40-year-old John Woerdehoff is accused of robbing a Cascade woman at gunpoint in her garage.
He is also suspected in two other Cascade thefts in January.
In addition, Woerdehoff is accused in Linn County of robbing a woman while pretending to be a police officer. Charges in that case are still pending.
Woerdehoff works at the Oakdale prison in Johnson County.
The Department of Corrections tells CBS 2/FOX 28 News Woerdehoff has been employed at the facility for less than a year.
Because charges do not apply to the Department of Corrections, though, officials say they cannot comment on them.
