MASON CITY, Iowa – A Worth County man has been arrested after authorities say he tried to sell a stolen pickup truck.

Christopher John Heyden, 34 of Manly, is charged with 2nd degree theft and driving while barred. Mason City police say Heyden paid $300 for a 1999 Ford Ranger on August 30, then tried to sell it for $500. According to court documents, the Ranger was in good condition, worth about $2,000 to $2,500, and Heyden did not get the title when he “bought” it. Law enforcement says Heyden should have known he was buying a stolen vehicle and should not have tried to sell it a few hours later.

Two witnesses also say they saw Heyden driving the stolen pickup on August 30 from Alden to Clear Lake, back to Alden, and then to Mason City.

Heyden was arrested in Worth County on Tuesday and booked into the Cerro Gordo County Jail on $10,000 bond.
