Garner man accused of burglary in Mason City skips court

MASON CITY – A Garner, Iowa man who pled guilty to burglary in August and was caught later that month in Mason City after allegedly burglarizing a house skipped his court date but was soon caught by law enforcement.

The trouble for 25-year-old Eric Cuevas began when a Mason City woman living at 1426 3rd Street SE called police on August 20 at 7:42 AM to report that he had entered her residence. Cuevas fled the scene, but police caught him a few blocks away a short time later and he was arrested on a charge of felony 2nd degree burglary. He was jailed, but released the very next day as he awaited court dates.

In August, Cuevas entered a guilty plea to 3rd degree burglary in Hancock county after being charged with felony 1st degree burglary by Garner police. He was given suspended fines and a suspended 5-year prison sentence and probation. He also pled guilty to domestic abuse and was given a 30 day jail term and a $65 fine.

Cuevas was due in court in Mason City on October 13 for a pre-trial conference, likely to discuss a plea deal. He failed to appear, and a judge issued a warrant for his arrest. Garner Police told NIT that they arrested Cuevas Wednesday in Garner and he was transported to Ventura where a Cerro Gordo deputy transported him to the county jail. He is being held on $10,000.00 bond as he awaits a pre-trial conference on November 3 and a potential jury trial on November 17.

Cuevas also awaits a probation revocation hearing on October 20 in connection to his guilty plea to burglary in Hancock county.
