MANLY, Iowa – A Plymouth man who was arrested for stealing a skid loader about a month ago is breaking the law once again.
Yesterday the Mason City Police Department executed eight search warrants on multiple properties owned by Mark Richard Petersen.
Officers recovered several items of stolen property totaling almost 58 thousand dollars in value.
Wednesday, Peterson turned himself in.

He is facing second degree possession of stolen property charges. Authorities are telling KIMT News 3 it’s an ongoing investigation and they need the public’s help
“We believe that there may be more stolen property at other people’s residence so if somebody has some property that may belong to Mr. Petersen they’re encouraged to give us a call or their local law enforcement agency so we can check it out make sure that it’s not stolen,” says Mason City Police Investigator, Aaron Onder.
Onder would not go into detail about what stolen items were found at Peterson’s properties.
Petersen could face up to five years in prison and $7,500 in fines
