MASON CITY, Iowa – A North Iowa man is admitting to stealing catalytic converters.
Jeremy Nicholas Mulford, 41 of Mason City, was arrested in July after a 90 mile per hour chase that ended with Mulford being found by law enforcement hiding under a mattress at his home. Authorities say Mulford stole catalytic converters off four vehicles in Clear Lake on February 19 and then stole another off a vehicle in Mason City on February 23.
Mulford has now pleaded guilty to second-degree theft and second-degree criminal mischief. His sentencing is scheduled for October 27.
