BENTON — The U.S. government is suing an Enfield mortgage holder, alleging he owes more than $58,000 for breach of a mortgage agreement.

The United States of America filed a complaint Nov. 20 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois against Thomas Mason, alleging he failed to perform his contractual obligations.

According to the complaint, on Dec. 8, 1999, the U.S., acting through the Rural Housing Service, provided a loan to Mason in the principal amount of $62,500 secured by the premises at 120 Walnut St., Enfield. As of Aug. 20, 2018, the total amount due is $58,410.40, the suit states.

The plaintiff alleges Mason has failed to pay monthly installments when due.

The U.S. seeks trial by jury, an order requiring Mason to pay the plaintiff before expiration of any redemption period, granting possession, if sought, and placing the mortgagee in possession or appointing a receiver, if sought, plus attorney fees, court costs and expenses and all other equitable relief. It is represented by attorney Adam E. Hanna of the U.S. Attorney's Office in Fairview Heights.
