WORTH COUNTY, Iowa – A man wanted on felony first-degree burglary out of Cerro Gordo County has been arrested in Worth County on a handful of charges.
Phillip Melby, 32, was a passenger in a vehicle driven by Bridget Fleming that was stopped early Tuesday morning in the 4100 block of Wheelerwood Ave.
He allegedly told authorities his name was Jaime Lee Paulsen but was later identified as Melby.
He was charged with possession of a controlled substance, third or subsequent offense, possession of drug paraphernalia, providing false information and open container.
The burglary charge stems from a March 13 incident at a Mason City residence in the 600 block of S. Washington Ave. where Melby entered and assaulted a known subject, police said.
Melby is being held on $27,000 bond in the Worth County Jail.
