MASON CITY, Iowa – A Minnesota man is jailed for a North Iowa auto theft.

Christian Kelly Brodt, 25 of Blaine, MN, was booked into the Cerro Gordo County Jail at 6:45 am Tuesday on a charge of 1st degree theft. He’s accused of stealing a pickup truck from Tony’s Tire Service in Clear Lake on August 27, 2018.
