Trial information was filed last week in Carroll County District Court against a Glidden man accused of possessing an illegally modified firearm. According to court records, 39-year-old Nicholas Ray Wothe faces one count of possession of a short-barreled shotgun, a class D felony. A criminal complaint from the Manning Police Department says a loaded sawed-off shotgun, which had its safety glued into the off position, was found in his vehicle parked outside the Manning Regional Healthcare Center on Sept. 2. Regulations require shotguns to have a barrel of at least 18 inches in length. Wothe’s arraignment hearing is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 24 at the courthouse. A class D felony in Iowa carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and $7,500 in fines.
