Two Mason City, IA, residents were arrested May 21 for stealing radiators from a Clear Lake, IA, collision repair center.

Tracy Eugene Burke, 49, and Tina Ann Caruth, 41, were each charged with felony second-degree theft and cited for trespassing - first offense following an incident at North Iowa Collision Center, 11000 265th St. in Clear Lake.

About 1:15 a.m. May 21, Burke and Caruth were allegedly found in possession of several stolen aluminum radiators from North Iowa Collision Center.
