NORTH LIBERTY — A man high on meth was arrested Saturday after he reported a captive in his basement, but police found only an illegally possessed gun.
Police said Kyle L. Wagner, 39, was “extremely high on meth” around 4 p.m. at his home on Swan Lake Road SW. Wagner was “very paranoid” that someone was being held captive in his basement, according to a police criminal complaint.

As a felon, Wagner is barred from possessing firearms.
He was arrested and faces one count of control of dominion/control of a firearm by a felon, a Class D felony punishable by up to five years in prison.
