HAMPTON – A Marble Rock man was arrested with the assistance of local authorities from Franklin to Floyd county over the weekend.

Emergency 911 centers from Cerro Gordo, Floyd and Franklin counties had received calls from a man later identified as John Edwin Marzen, age 32, making threats to police in Franklin county.

Hampton police on Monday said that the trouble started on November 23rd, 2013 at approximately 5:39 a.m., when the Hampton Police Department received calls on 911 as well as the administrative phone line. These calls were found to being made by John Edwin Marzen of Marble Rock. The caller asked for a deputy and also advised that he was south of Sheffield and hadn’t found a cop. He also called 911 to report that he had “seen an Officer shot, south of FS”. There was a Hampton officer in the area at the time of the call. When officers tried to locate the vehicle it had left the area.

Dispatch received another 911 call and the caller said he was run off the road by a white pickup at the intersection of 120th and Olive. This led to a search of that area and the southern part of Franklin County. He was not located and information was sent to Floyd County to watch for the individual. He was later arrested by Floyd County on charges of going armed with intent, 1st degree harassment and public intoxication.

Marzen is being held in the Floyd County Jail on $9,000.00 bond. Hampton Police charges are pending. Assisting the Hampton Police in the search of Mr. Marzen were the Franklin County S.O., Iowa State Patrol, Hardin County S.O. and the Iowa Falls Police Department.
