Taylor Gordon Maricle, 23, formerly of Austin and now living in Clear Lake, is charged with ongoing criminal conduct, check forgery, possession of meth, and possession of Viagra without a prescription. He was arrested after Mason City police were called to Shopko on November 27 for a shoplifting complaint.
