MASON CITY – An attempt to post bond for a person held in the county jail went all wrong for a Mason City man and woman.
A Cerro Gordo deputy stopped a vehicle at the Cerro Gordo Law Enforcement Complex on Sunday evening before 9 PM. After an investigation, two people were arrested. Destiny Renee Bates, age 23, was charged with first offense operating while intoxicated. Nicholas Jon Wilmarth, age 27, was charged with public intoxication. Both were jailed and then released pending a court date.
“They were posting another person’s bond that was in jail,” Sheriff Kevin Pals told NIT today.
