A Marshalltown man was arrested by Marshall County Sheriff’s Office deputies earlier this week stemming from a county warrant for third-degree theft and assault charges, according to a MCSO report. Marshall County Chief Deputy Joel Phillips said deputies had been dispatched to the Timber Valley Trailer Court in the 2500 block of Smith Avenue last week on report of a robbery. “A Mr. Hal C. Runner had taken a trailer from Lot 1,” said Phillips. “There was a dispute as to who owned the trailer. While Runner was removing the trailer he assaulted the trailer’s owner.”
