ROCKWELL – A wanted Mason City man toting meth was wreaked havoc near Rockwell Tuesday morning before citizens and law enforcement were able to tower together to bring him in.

Details of Incident: Shortly before 1:00 AM on January 7, 2019, Cerro Gordo county deputies responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle in the area of the Rockwell Care Center at 707 E Elm Street in Rockwell. While en route, deputies came into contact with the suspected vehicle, driving Northbound on Highway 65. The vehicle fled from deputies into a field before the driver fled on foot, abandoning the vehicle at a property in the 11000 block of Owl avenue. After an extensive search, deputies were unable to locate the suspect at that time.

Shortly after 4:00 AM, deputies were called back to the area. A witness reported seeing a vehicle flee the area at a high rate of speed. When deputies arrived, they located an unoccupied 1994 Dodge van in a ditch in the area of Partridge Avenue and 200th street. The vehicle had been stolen from a nearby building by driving it through a closed garage door. While deputies investigated the incidents, another call was taken in the 16000 block of 200th street involving a suspicious subject on the property. Deputies arrived on scene quickly and after a search of the property they took into custody Terry Leroy Arp, age 29 of Mason City. Arp was found hiding inside of a shed.

Arp was arrested and is being held at the Cerro Gordo county jail on outstanding warrants for driving while barred and theft 3rd degree from recent Mason City Police Department incidents. Arp faces new charges of trespassing, driving while barred, possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), possession of drug paraphernalia, operating without owners consent, criminal mischief, and failure to maintain control

The incident remains under investigation.

    I kick myself daily for never having tried meth. It’s an action-packed video game inside your head.

      That’s just an irresponsible dangerous thing to suggest people do. Maybe a single bullet is the solution to some of the criminal element but its not the case here. I think you would agree real pieces of shit die hard and meth makes that even worse. Please use ALL the bullets in your home defense weapon. Don’t be stingy guy’s, stay safe.
