Police encounter armed men during Mason City traffic stop

MASON CITY – One armed man fled and a Mason City man with a sawed-off shotgun was arrested during a Mason City traffic stop Friday night.

On December 6, 2019, at about 8:50 PM, a Cerro Gordo County Sheriff’s Deputy made a traffic stop in the 900 block of North Adams Avenue in Mason City for an equipment violation. During the stop, a sawed off, pistol grip rifle could be seen in plain view, next to the back seat passenger. While attending to the two passengers, the driver of the vehicle fled on foot. The driver was identified as Marcus Houston Jones, 31, of St. Paul, MN. When Jones exited the vehicle, a loaded .45 caliber handgun was dropped onto the ground. Jones was not captured immediately and warrants for his arrest have been filed for carrying weapons, possession of a firearm as a convicted felon, and interference with official acts.

Anyone with information about Jones’ location is asked to call law enforcement. He should be considered armed.

The back seat passenger was arrested at the scene and identified as Carlos Levelle Cooper, 35, of Mason City. Cooper was charged with carrying weapons, possession of a firearm as a convicted felon, and 3rd offense possession of marijuana. Cooper was taken to the Cerro Gordo County jail and held for bond.

The third male occupant was not charged with any crimes relating to this incident.

Mason City Police assisted at the scene.

Home boy gonna be thuggin, buggin, and saggin in the big house.

This type of situation is becoming the norm rather than the exception in Mason City. And it seems the most prevalent perpetrators are black people. That alone should indicate the racial problem we have here in Mason
City.

Now listen..you can’t say stuff like that, even if it is 100% true. The SJWs will have your ass for lunch. The day is coming when you will be prosecuted for telling the truth about crime stats. Don’t you know the rules?

For now, it’s still OK to say (to yourself),”Too bad the cops didn’t blast all three of ’em.”

Accordingly you should only “blast” 2 of them.

“The third male occupant was not charged with any crimes relating to this incident. ”
See,he is an innocent little angel, a choir boy otherwise he would have been charged like/with the the others.

So how many of these have to take place in a year before the good people of Mason city have at least a 90% carry rate. If those of us who are not criminals carried and we where the majority this type of scumbag would move to Charles city or elsewhere. Wouldnt be out problem anymore. Sad to say but we need some ccw folks to shoot a few of these detroit and Chicago folks and not face any consequences for doing the right thing. This type of animal only learns through force.

I refuse to own or carry a gun of any sort. I was taught that killing another person is a sin.

Perhaps many people here care not about human lives, no matter how corrupt and evil they may be. None the less, they are lives, and we have no right to terminate them. Only God has that right as His will dictates.

I am mindful that we all must follow secular law, and insist that others do as well. There are other consequences with violations of our laws other than killing.

Why do I have to follow your’ secular law? I do not believe in your religion. Maybe YOU should believe in the rule of LAW.

Remember that conviction, when seconds count and help is 10 minutes away.

Your mystical, imaginary beliefs will not protect you when real bad people with real guns come to take your money, your stuff, or your life. At least have the brains to appreciate the REAL people with real guns that are tasked with protecting you from these real (not imaginary) bad people.

If a situation were to arise, where your own life was in danger, carrying a firearm, doesn’t mean you have to shoot to kill. You can practice shooting, improving your aim. You could even go so far as to shoot yourself and save the criminal the trouble. carrying a firearm just gives you more options.

F***ing crooks would never expect that.

Just shoot this trash next time! They will think twice next time of coming to Mason.

All of you seem to have missed something important. “The third male occupant was not charged with any crimes relating to this incident. ”
Who gets his pay off? See to much of this crap in MC and surrounding areas.

Rat.

One armed man fled and a Mason City man with a “sawed-off shotgun” was arrested during a Mason City traffic stop Friday night.

During the stop, a “sawed off, pistol grip rifle” could be seen in plain view, next to the back seat passenger.

OK, which was it, a rifle or a shotgun?

who cares. it was a firearm confiscated from a know felon

whats a know felon?

Usually, a soul brothah.

Thank the brave police for doing a 5 star job. These type of dumb asses are up to no good. A sawed off rifle is a very dangerous weapon. So is a rock upside this dumb asses head. Go back to Minnesota.

A sawed off rifle is a very dangerous weapon lol. You’re the type that gets scared of the ar because it looks “menacing”. I’d rather they saw off their rifle barrels. Any loss in ballistic efficiency is a positive for us potential victims. Black males are a plague upon society. Any firearm in the hands of thug wannabe section 8 trash is dangerous but your assertion that a sawed off rifle somehow is more dangerous than any other firearm is stupid. Rifles depend on velocity for their damaging effects, sawing then off is not advisable. You guys ever wonder about all the black men with guns that aren’t getting caught? Or the meth heads with guns not getting caught? They are all over this city everyday.

White redneck bigots are a plague upon our society. They profess loyalty to America, but choose when and how to ignore the basic concepts of our Country, and the laws that guide us.

Specifically, that all men are created equal, and have equal protection under the law.

Yes, you are free to spew forth racist and xenophobic ideas, as it is a right under our Constitution. But don’t expect that it will be met with roses and praise.

Who do you think is more likely to carjack, Mug, or ‘Knockout Game’ you..two redneck bigots, or a couple of these (Marcus & Carlos) guys in this news story?

You don’t lock your house and your car because of those redneck bigots, pal.

The post above yours, that you were trolling on,about a “sawed off rifle”.
You might want to reread it, then get some one to explain what these 2 sentences mean, “A sawed off rifle is a very dangerous weapon. So is a rock upside this dumb asses head.”

You said, “your assertion that a sawed off rifle somehow is more dangerous than any other firearm is stupid.”
IN NO WAY did they say a sawed off rifle was more dangerous. You just wanted to feel like good about yourself for “putting somebody in their place”. Well, back at ya butmunch.

Why are these cockroaches coming to Mason City?! And if they are living in rental properties, Arrest and charge the landlords too!

Drugs, and the landlords don’t give a shit.

They are living rental properties, or in one of the fleabag hotels here, like the Days Inn. Every dumbass who’s watched HGTV thinks they can be a land baron now, so they buy crappy foreclosed houses and rent them to any scum with the cash. We used to have a landlord licensing law in Mason City that prevented this sort or thing, but Eric Bookmeyer and his crooked cronies on the council got rid of it.

It’s funny, but I don’t imagine any of these three guys paying rent to anybody. That ain’t part of their game.

They walk among us

And carry.
