North Iowa Burglar Caught in the Act

A Mason City man was arrested Tuesday night after the owner of the home he was burglarizing caught him in the act.

The Cerro Gordo County Sheriff’s Office has arrested 34-year-old Mitchell Stevens after he was caught entering several occupied structures on 120th Street near Sheffield. Authorities said Stevens had set several items in a pile and had items in the car he was driving while the homeowner witnessed his illegal activity firsthand.

Stevens was later found at a residence in Rockwell and is facing a felony burglary charge.
