CERRO GORDO CO., Iowa – A stolen vehicle leads authorities on a search for a suspect in north Iowa.

Mason City Police were dispatched on a report of a stolen vehicle from Wal-Mart Wednesday evening, then a short time later Cerro Gordo County Sheriff’s Deputies spotted that stolen vehicle in a ditch near Jonquil Avenue but nobody was inside.

A short time later, authorities say they got a report of an unknown person entering a home on Jonquil Avenue. After calling for backup, law enforcement noticed the suspect had taken off into a nearby field.

Authorities then searched a large area before arresting 25-year-old Nikolas Harken of Spencer. He now faces numerous criminal charges.
