Inman Dean of Students arrested

The Dean of Students for the Inman Elementary School in Red Oak, Anthony Tyler Jones, was arrested Monday, Sept. 19, on a warrant out of Clarke County for an incident that occurred Aug. 18, 2018. According to a press release from the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, Jones, 30, was arrested on a warrant for 2nd degree criminal mischief, a Class-D Felony.

Criminal mischief is defined by Iowa code as intentionally damaging, defacing, altering or destroying property without authority. Charges depend on the cost of damage to said property. Any time an individual damages someone else's property without the owner's permission, that's criminal mischief. Criminal mischief in the second degree is when the mischief causes more than $1,500 in damage but less than $10,000 in damage.

Jones was transported to the Clarke County Jail and later posted a $5,000 surety bond before being released. He’s scheduled to be arraigned on Oct. 6, with a preliminary hearing Oct. 10.
