MASON CITY – Mason City Police were called to Beje Clark at 1:30 p.m. on Monday on a report of a resident obstructing the legal process.
37-year-old Chad Duane Dean of Mason City had allegedly left without permission just three days after being transported to the facility from the Cerro Gordo County Jail. A warrant was issued for Dean’s arrest and law enforcement captured him and he was booked back into the Cerro Gordo County Jail at 3:10pm on one Class D felony count of escape from custody.
Dean had been housed in the Cerro Gordo County Jail awaiting bed space at Beje Clark since November 2011 after he sentenced to complete the residential treatment program at Beje Clark. District Court Judge Colleen D. Weiland sentenced Dean to the facility after he was found guilty on a probation violation in a 2nd offense possession of a controlled substance conviction.
In addition to the new felony escape charge Dean is set to go to trial on an assault causing bodily injury on June 15th at 1:15pm.
