Authorities say he and two unknown suspects went to a parking lot in the 100 block of 7th Street SE in Mason City early Saturday morning, cut the lock off an enclosed trailer, and stole two snowmobiles worth a combined total of nearly $21,000.

Police say the two unknown suspects were seen escaping the scene on the two snowmobiles, while Shackleton drove a vehicle to and from the parking lot. Officers say a cut padlock was found in Shackleton’s vehicle.

Shackleton is being held in the Cerro Gordo County Jail on $10,000 bond.
