They advised the subjects, who where operating at that time in the 1400 block of North Rhode Island Avenue, that they could not operate the vehicles on the road. Law enforcement had caught up with 2 ATV riders and 1 dirt bike at Northside Liquor at about that time and could be seen outside the establishment (pictured).
Just a short time later, Mason City Mason City police began fielding more calls from the Highland Golf Course area about ATVs buzzing around on the streets. An officer went tot he area to observe at about 1:35 AM and said he would remain there for a short time.
