MASON CITY – A wanted man with virtually his own pharmacy in tow was chased by deputies into a North End home before being arrested late Wednesday.

According to the Cerro Gordo County Sheriff’s Office, at about 7:19 PM Wednesday, a deputy located 23-year-old Seth Dean Carolus of Cedar Rapids driving a car near the 800 block of North Pierce Avenue. Carolus was wanted on warrants of violation of parole out of Linn county and third degree theft out of Cerro Gordo county.

According to a report, Carolus was driving a car when the deputy spotted him, but then apparently abandoned the vehicle and fled on foot to a residence at 831 North Pierce Avenue, owned by Scott and Sara Turnbull, near Hoover School.

Carolus was caught and arrested, and in that process, at least five different drugs were found to be in his possession: Methamphetamine, marijuana, psilocybin mushrooms, clonazepam, and unlawful prescription drugs.

Carolus was charged with third offense possession of meth, third offense possession of marijuana, third offense possession of psilocybin mushrooms, third offense possession of clonazepam, unlawful possession of prescription drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia.

Carolus is being held on $17,000 cash-only bond.

    Hey Matt,

    The house that he was caught in was really at least a block away. I know the people who own the house and it is a rent house now.

    The man likes his substances. You like your whiskey. What’s the criminal offense? Because Doctors want you to go through them for payment? Mushrooms and marijuana grow naturally in the wild. God WANTED THEM here. Meth was created by the Nazis. Conazapem is anti anxiety, and whatever the other drugs are were probably pain killers. You like pain? Who cares if someone wants to take their pain away? I don’t.
