One arrested, three on the loose in connection with July burglary
One person has been arrested and the Marshalltown Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating three more subjects who allegedly stole a safe from an apartment complex last month.
Police officers arrested 37-year-old Adam Beem, of Marshalltown, Friday and charged him with second-degree theft and conspiracy to commit a felony, both class D felonies, in connection with the July 6 burglary.
Giles Clark, 49, and Christopher Mason, 38, both of Marshalltown, and Renae Mason, of Le Grand, are still at large.
According to a news release, the MPD and the Marshall County Attorney’s Office issued arrest warrants for the four individuals who allegedly stole a safe from the Park Elm Apartments, 415 N. Third St., that reportedly had $250,000 worth of silver inside.
Capt. Mike Hanken, with the MPD, said he believes these three subjects are still in the area.
“We still believe that they’re somewhere in the Marshalltown area,” he said.
Clark is described as a white male, 6 feet, 3 inches tall, 190 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes. Clark is wanted for numerous charges including: ongoing criminal conduct, first-degree theft, money laundering, third degree burglary and conspiracy to commit a felony, all of which are felonies. He’s also wanted on two counts of probation violation, the release said.
Christopher Mason is described as a white male, 6 feet tall, 220 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes. Mason is wanted for: ongoing criminal conduct, first-degree theft, third-degree burglary, conspiracy to commit a felony and possession of a schedule II controlled substance (enhanced).
Renae Mason is described as a white female, 5 feet, 4 inches tall, 110 pounds with brown hair and green eyes. Renae is wanted for third degree theft, an aggravated misdemeanor.
Hanken said both Clark and Mason are being charged with ongoing criminal conduct, which means they tried to sell the stolen items for profit. Ongoing criminal conduct is a class B felony and punishable by up to 25 years in prison.
Hanken said these three individuals aren’t considered extremely dangerous, but a person never knows what someone might do.
If anyone sees these individuals Hanken said to contact authorities immediately.
