U.S. Marshals apprehend Iowa man in Iron River

IRON RIVER/GRAND RAPIDS — The U.S. Marshals Service, with assistance from local law enforcement agencies, apprehended an Iowa man in Iron River on Dec. 3.
    According to the U.S. Marshal Service Western Michigan District in Grand Rapids, Mark Heyn, 47, was taken into custody in the early afternoon on Washington Avenue about a block from the West Iron County school campus. Heyn had a federal warrant issued stemming from a charge of possession of a firearm by a felon in Fairfield, Iowa, and with the possibility that Heyn was armed, authorities ordered a lockdown at the school as a precautionary measure.
    Heyn is awaiting a court appearance and will be extradited to Iowa. No other information was released by federal or local authorities.
