CHARLES CITY, Iowa – A Mason City man is facing charges after a high-speed pursuit in Floyd County.

Sean Daniel Wendling, 51, was arrested on Sunday and charged with felony eluding, possession of stolen property, and possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver. The Floyd County Sheriff’s Office says a deputy tried to pull Wendling over on the Avenue of the Saints near Floyd due to a headlight out. Wendling is accused of speeding away through Floyd before abandoning his vehicle and hiding in a wooded area east of the truck stops.

A K9 unit was brought in and the Sheriff’s Office says Wendling was found after a brief search.

According to court documents, Wendling was found with multiple baggies of methamphetamine and the car he was driving was reported stolen out of Kansas.

The Charles City Police Department, Mitchell County Sheriff’s Office and the Iowa State Patrol assisted in this arrest.
