MASON CITY | A Mason City man was arrested early Saturday morning in a parking lot for possessing methamphetamine.
Jason Wayne Robison, 44, was charged with misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance-second offense and possession of drug paraphernalia following an incident in the Hy-Vee parking lot on the 500 block of South Illinois.
About 4:29 a.m. Saturday, Mason City Police allegedly found Robison carrying a silver vial containing methamphetamine. The vial was tied onto the hooded sweatshirt he was wearing, court documents said.
Police also found a red hollowed out ink pen containing crystal drug residue in his front jean pocket.
Robison has one prior felony in Cerro Gordo County: a drug conviction in 2003.
Robison was released on his own recognizance Monday and is scheduled to appear May 25 in Cerro Gordo County District Court.
He pleaded not guilty to the drug paraphernalia charge and a non-jury trial is set for November.
