The two Boone brothers who were arrested last month for their connection with a July northwest Ames home invasion face additional charges stemming from an incident in Nevada.
Eduard Nickolas Lester, 22, and Ian Sergey Lester, 19, are each charged with first-degree robbery and first-degree burglary.
According to court documents, the two men forcefully entered a home in 1600 block of 10th Street, around 9:30 a.m. on July 31. Documents show the Lesters concealed their identities with bandanas, forced the residents back and demanded money. Both men reportedly remained in the residence and left after a verbal argument with the occupants. Documents show Eduard Lester reportedly did display a firearm and threaten to shoot the occupants if not provided the money.
The Lesters were originally arrested in late August and charged with first-degree robbery, second-degree theft and fourth-degree criminal mischief for the northwest Ames incident.
According to court documents, Lester and his accomplice forcefully entered a home on the 4100 block of Ontario Street around 5 p.m. on July 24. Documents show the victim told police that he heard a knock at the door, and as he went to open it, the suspects pushed him to the floor as they made their way in the house.
The victim believed the suspects had a gun, so when they reportedly told the victim to lay on the floor, he complied. The men then went through the house, taking various items from the home and damaging several others, police said.
According to Ames Police Cmdr. Geoff Huff, the suspects took a laptop computer, two tablets, cash, two small safes and some alcohol before fleeing the house. Documents show the total value of the items was $2,850.
Documents show Lester’s fingerprints were lifted from several items from around the house.
The victim did not suffer any injuries from the home invasion.
As of Monday afternoon, both men remained held at Story County Jail Monday on $100,000 bond.
