MASON CITY | Two men accused of stealing a bicycle from the Mason City Public Library face criminal charges.

Cole Thomas Seglem, 21, of Forest City, was charged with misdemeanor fourth-degree theft, possession of burglar's tools, possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Joseph Dean Anderson, 28, of Mason City, was charged with misdemeanor fourth-degree theft.

Police say Thomas Seglem was spotted riding a bike stolen about 10 a.m. Monday from the library parking lot.

Investigators had responded to the library after receiving a report of someone tampering with a bicycle.

Numerous bike thefts have been reported throughout Mason City this year, including six bikes taken in one night last month from guests of the Historic Park Inn Hotel.

Parts of four of those bikes, along with dozens of bike frames and miscellaneous parts, were found stored in an apartment about a half-block from the library.

The resident of that home, Ryan David Ihde, 35, was charged with felony theft.
