SIOUX CITY, Iowa – A man who escaped from a residential facility in Mason City is heading back to federal prison.

In 2007, Chad Stocks of Clarion was sentenced to 14 years in federal prison for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime. He was released and entered the Beje Clark Residential Release Center on April 19, 2017.
