MASON CITY – A Mason City cell phone store was burglarized this week.

On Wednesday, April 18, 2018, at approximately 3:22 a.m., Mason City Police Officers responded to a burglary alarm at Verizon Wireless, 4063 4th Street SW. Upon arrival, officers discovered that forced entry had been made to the building.

Store employees were notified to respond to assist at the scene. Several electronic items were taken in the burglary. Quick thinking officers put the alert out to other law enforcement agencies in our area in case other Verizon stores were targeted. A suspect vehicle was also identified as part of the investigation.

Four juvenile suspects were located and detained in Albert Lea, Minnesota, near a Verizon Wireless store located there. The Mason City Police Department is working with authorities in Minnesota in this ongoing investigation. At this time, we believe that the items taken from the Mason City Verizon Wireless store were recovered at the time the suspects were located in Albert Lea.

The juveniles are facing felony charges in Iowa for burglary and ongoing criminal conduct. All four have referred to Cerro Gordo County Juvenile Court services.

The incident remains under investigation. If you have information about this case, please call the Mason City Police Department at 641-421-3636.

    They caught the imports in the same act in Albert Lea – Just a smart group of thieves that the democrats agendas that have allowed foreign illegals and state transfers of refugees and welfare bodies of over extended welfare state like illinois to be bused to law abiding rural communities. Do you think the democrats care about your safety or job protection – go ahead and vote for them in the next election – they will tell you it will make you safe and help job creation – all the while bringing in cheap labor for large corporations to suppress wages of the low income workers born and bred in America – Like the Kenyon socialist OBAMA who did his best along with the Clintons to destroy America.
