MASON CITY – A Mason City woman who lied to police to avoid arrest was taken into custody last week.
According to police, on May 2, 2013, MCPD officers were at Hy-Vee East on an unrelated investigation at approx 10:00 pm. Officers observed Cayla Graupman, 23, and another female sitting nearby in a car. Officers knew Graupman had valid arrest warrants and walked over and spoke to both females. During this interaction, Graupman claimed to be somebody else to the uniformed officers. Officers knew this information to be false. Graupman was charged with Providing False Information to law enforcement. Drug paraphernalia was found in her purse and she was charged with Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
Graupman was wanted on valid arrest warrants obtained by the North Iowa Narcotics Task Force in March, which included charges of possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver and possession of hydrocodone with intent to deliver.
Graupman is being held in the Cerro Gordo County Jail on multiple bond amounts at this time, the largest of which is $20,000.
