MASON CITY, Iowa – Separate trials are set for the men accused of breaking into some Clear Lake storage units.
Ezra Sinus Marroquin, 21 of Mason City, and Julian Taylor Washington, 22 of Mason City, have both pleaded not guilty to two counts of 3rd degree burglary, possession of burglary tools, and 4th degree criminal mischief.

Washington’s trial is set to start on December 3. Marroquin’s trial is scheduled to begin on December 10.
