On January 30, 2022 at 2043 hours a Cerro Gordo county deputy observed 34-year-old Jared Scott Schneckloth of Mason City operating a 2013 Mercedes Benz C300 near Fin and Feather Lake, 16638 230th Street. Schneckloth has three active warrants for his arrest from Council Bluffs, Woodbury County, and Plymouth County all for failure to appear for driving while barred.
