MASON CITY – A Mason City man ended up with a jail sentence after he was stopped by police while driving a car with stolen license plates.
Mason City police tell NIT that on October 8, 2016, at 1:03 PM, an MCPD officer stopped a car at 15th and South Benjamin because the plates on the car were registered to a different vehicle. While speaking to the driver, 19-year-old Jadyn Lee Adams of Mason City, the officer observed two different license plates lying on the rear window deck. One of the license plates on the rear window deck had been reported stolen in June 2015. Officers also found suspected marijuana and a pot pipe in the car. Adams was arrested for Possession of Stolen Property 5th Degree, Possession of Controlled Substance, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
In a later plea deal, Adams was guilty of first-offense possession of a controlled substance. The other charges appear to have been dismissed. He was sentenced to 2 days in jail and must pay $551.50 in fines and court fees.
