A Mason City man could end up in prison for a couple of years after being arrested for allegedly planting a stash of marijuana at the Cerro Gordo County Courthouse. The Sheriff’s Department says they arrested 23-year-old Matthew Kiroff at the Courthouse Tuesday for possession of marijuana second offense.
That’s after building maintenance located a stash of marijuana in a bathroom and altered deputies of the discovery. After an investigation by the Sheriff’s Department, Kiroff was found trying to remove the marijuana from the courthouse and was placed under arrest. Kiroff faces up to two years in prison and a fine of up to $6,250 if convicted.
