The man wanted for last week’s murder of a Mason City man was arrested on Monday afternoon after a standoff with authorities in Algona.
The Mason City Police Department says at around 4 PM Monday, 38-year-old Benjamin Gonzalez was taken into custody on a first-degree murder warrant. He’s accused of the shooting death last Wednesday night of 36-year-old Michael Creviston in Mason City.
Gonzalez is being held in the Cerro Gordo County Jail on a $1 million cash-only bond pending an initial court appearance.
