MASON CITY – A Mason City man accused of two counts of possession with intent to deliver meth is in more trouble after an apparently unfriendly episode with a jailhouse television set.

Cerro Gordo county jail inmate Reed Barclay has been in jail since December 27, charged with delivering the highly-illegal drug methamphetamine. Sunday night at the jail, Sheriff Kevin Pals tells NIT that Barclay caused damage to a television set in the jail day room. He didn’t elaborate on what Barclay allegedly did to the TV, but Barclay was charged with fourth-degree criminal mischief, a serious misdemeanor.

Barclay, age 34, is currently accused by the Cerro GOrdo sheriffs office of possession with the intent to deliver 1-5 grams of methamphetamine – a drug so powerful, movies are made about it. He has entered a not guilty plea and remains jailed on bond until a February 23 jury trial.
