MASON CITY – Police said Tuesday they are awaiting damage estimates from a woman or her landlord after a man allegedly broke in a door as he entered the woman’s home.

According to a source, James Robert Perry, age 22, allegedly broke in a woman’s door at her house located in the 200 block of 6th Street SE on December 12th at about 9:19 AM before retrieving items that belonged to him.

Police said Tuesday that a woman had called police that morning, reporting that Perry had broken the door when entering her home to retrieve some of his property. Perry left while Mason City police officers were enroute. Four officers responded to the scene and caught Perry driving away from the area, stopped his vehicle, and arrested him for driving while barred. He was taken to the Cerro Gordo County Jail. “Perry may have been living with the female at the residence prior to the altercation,” officer Mike McKelvey said. “Police are awaiting damage estimates from the caller or landlord. The damage looked to be minor.”

After the incident, a source said that the police “did nothing about” the alleged door break-in. “The day he (Perry) was arrested he broke down her door and when she called they picked him up for driving while barred when he was leaving and that was it.”

Perry posted $2,000 cash bond and was released that same day.
