Mason City man headed to prison for methamphetamine delivery

On Tuesday 52-year-old Allen Ray Brooking, of Mason City, was sentenced ten years in prison after plea bargaining to one of five possessions of a controlled substance with intent to deliver charges. In exchange the other four charges were dismissed, along with two counts of 3rd offense possession of methamphetamine and possession of marijuana.

Brooking had been arrested along with fourteen other defendants in July of this year as part of an investigation by the North Iowa Drug Task Force.

The charge stems from Brooking’s delivery of methamphetamine on four separate occasions between August and September 2010 during controlled buys by the North Iowa Drug Task Force. One more controlled buy was conducted on October 5th,2010 in which Brooking delivered marijuana.

Court records show Brooking entered a voluntary negotiated guilty plea on November 1st, 2011.

On Tuesday, January 3rd, Brooking was sentenced in Cerro Gordo County District Court by Judge James Drew to a ten year prison sentence. Judge James Drew also suspended the minimum $1000 fine in the case, ordering Brooking to pay $6658.12 in costs, surcharges, and other costs related to the case. A $4500 cash bond posted in Allen Brooking’s name on August 30th was credited toward the judgment.

Court records show Brooking has been in and out of prison for the last fourteen years for methamphetamine distribution. Brooking was convicted in Floyd County in 1997 and sentenced to ten years in prison for possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine following a traffic stop in Nora Springs. Again in 2005 Cerro Gordo County Sheriff’s Department arrested Brooking for possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine a 2nd time. As a result of being found guilty in that case he was sent back to prison to serve another ten year.

Brooking was taken from the sentencing hearing at the Cerro Gordo County Court House and booking into the Cerro Gordo County jail where he is awaiting transport to prison.
