MASON CITY – A Mason City man already guilty of burglarizing cars – but got a pass on a felony forgery charge – has been accused a second time of forgery.
Anthony Dale Linderman, age 23, was charged in January with felony forgery after an investigation by Mason City police and an arrest on January 15 by Cerro Gordo deputies. He posted bond and was released from jail on January 30, and awaits a jury trial on April 14 and a pre-trial conference on April 3.
Linderman was back behind bars on March 19 when police searched him at a local bar and discovered he was in possession of drug paraphernalia. HE was taken to jail and soon released.
Linderman was accused in 2011 of felony forgery but was given a deferred judgement. He pleaded guilty to burglarizing cars and was sent to the Beje Clark halfway house and given three years of probation after spending 30 days in jail. He still owes Iowa courts $2,587.52 in that case, records show.
