MASON CITY – A Mason City man who previously was sent to prison for theft and other crimes is back behind bars accused of numerous crimes from throughout the area.

Ronald Benjamin Bakkum, age 48, is facing felony drug charges brought by Clear Lake police and Mason City police. He is also facing felony car burglary and fraud charges in Hancock county. He was brought to jail on warrants connected to these crimes back on September 27 and remains jailed as he awaits court hearings.

      You might be right, but it’s used all over in other publications. I haven’t the time to split hairs over inconsequential details.

        It is just that idiotic old geezer again.

        His life revolves around:
        Sleep
        Wake up & change depends
        Gum some prunes
        Log on and make ignorant comments
        Repeat

          I was thinking the same thing, remember when he used to whine about people using anonymous, now that’s all he posts under his anonymous.

            Yes, I remember.
            He would sob and bitch over people using “Anonymous”.
            Now, among his lengthy list of faults, he adds hypocrite.
            He is the ultimate dumbass and so useless, worthless, and pointless that it’s a shame he’s taking up good skin.

            Although I must admit Anonymous is correct. The perv is obviously a Hitlary voter. No moral, a thief and a liar. Fits right in with the Democrats.

            LVS-Nowhere in the above post do I see “LVS” mention at all yet you think they are talking about you?

            It is the same dumb ass comments they always use. They are so stupid and unoriginal they can’t come up with anything else. It is easy to see who they are and who they are commenting about. Every day it is the same old bull shit insults that really just show how totally ignorant they really are.

            @ Just curious, he knows that it is him because the descriptions & comments fit him to a T and are dead nuts on and everyone knows it.
            And he doesn’t know squat. He likes to throw terms around that he heard and sound like he knows something.
            He doesn’t know shit, he is just a pathetic old dickhead with a big mouth and no balls.

            Look who is talking. The big mouth coward behind the keyboard who would never have the guts to say anything face to face. He would run away screaming ;like the little pussy he really is. Chickenshit, dumb ass, big mouth coward. Come on tough guy, put up or SHTFU.
