MASON CITY – Two Mason City men ran from their car during a traffic stop but weren’t quick enough to evade the long legs of the law.

The incident went down Tuesday morning just before 1 AM. Mason City police took a report of a vehicle being operated without the owner’s consent. Police and Cerro Gordo county deputies began searching for the vehicle. Somewhere near the 300 block of West State Street, the vehicle was stopped and the two men inside ran from the scene. Eventually, both suspects were caught and arrested.

Terry Leroy Arp, age 27 was arrested for interference with official acts and on probation and parole violations. He had been wanted on a nationwide warrant since September 26.

    Arp needs to be locked up and kept locked up. He is a career criminal.
