On November 29 just before 3:00 AM, officers were dispatched to the area of 118 9th NW. A citizen reported seeing three subjects entering vehicles parked on the street. The citizen confronted the subjects and they fled on foot. A few moments later, officers arrived on scene and pursued the subjects. After a brief foot pursuit, the three subjects were arrested and transported to the police department.
The three subjects were identified as:
Christian David Jacobs (14) Clear Lake
Truman Theodore Murphy (15) Mason City
Treyton James Torkelson (14) Mason City
After investigating the crime, it was determined that the juveniles had been checking door handles of parked cars and entering the ones that were unlocked. They entered multiple vehicles parked in the northwest side of Mason City.
All three juveniles were charged with Burglary of a Motor vehicle (Aggravated Misdemeanor) and Interference with Official Acts (Simple Misdemeanor). This case will be referred to Juvenile Court Services.
All three juveniles were released to their parents or guardians
