MASON CITY | A man accused of dumping a stolen pickup at a Mason City Walmart faces criminal charges.

Joshuah Hockenson, 22, of Mason City, was charged Friday with felony first-degree theft, misdemeanor driving while barred, and misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance.

He was seen on security video driving a stolen pickup into the parking lot of the corporation's supercenter in Mason City about 10:30 a.m. May 3, according to court documents. 

Investigators said a passenger in the vehicle, not Hockenson, is believed to have stolen the truck out of Franklin County. 

Hockenson, who was barred from driving, let the passenger out, parked the truck and left it, according to court documents.

He remained jailed Tuesday afternoon on $12,000 bond.
