MASON CITY – A Mason City man who was arrested charges that included felony kidnapping appears set to take a plea deal.

According to police, on November 16th at about 12:43 PM, officers were dispatched to 130 5th Street NE for a welfare check on a resident.

After an investigation – which police would only state involved some kind of issue between two defendants, a victim and a vehicle – Delevan Shannon, age 61, and Ann Duff, age 50, were arrested and charged with kidnapping in the 2nd degree (B felony) and interference with official acts (simple misdemeanor).

Ann Duff took a plea deal last year, pleading guilty to false imprisonment. She got two weeks in jail and a $315 fine.

Shannon appears likely to take a plea deal as well. The kidnapping charge has already been modified to false imprisonment and was then dismissed. He is now facing a charge of assault causing bodily injury. Shannon is now awaiting an April 29, 2014 plea hearing.

    It’s kind of hard to figure out who the brains of this outfit would be.
