MASON CITY, Iowa – A man accused of trying to sell a stolen truck is pleading not guilty.

Authorities say Christopher John Heyden, 34 of Manly, bought the truck for $300 and tried to sell it for $500. Law enforcement says not only was the vehicle worth around $2,000 but Heyden didn’t get the title when he supposedly bought it.

Heyden is charged with 2nd degree theft as Mason City police say he should have known he was buying a stolen vehicle in the first place and should not have attempted to sell it.

His trial is set to start on December 4.
