DeKalb County, Ala. — On Thursday, January 3, 2019, the Rainsville City Council held a special called meeting to discuss the good name and character of a City employee.

After the Council came out of the executive session, the employment of John Casey Jones, a Rainsville Police Officer, was terminated immediately.

In a statement made to Southern Torch by Rainsville Police Chief Kevin Smith regarding the matter, he reported that he had received a formal complaint against John Casey Jones.

“After review of the complaint, I immediately contacted the State Bureau of Investigation and requested a third-party investigation to be conducted,” said Smith.

On Thursday, state authorities arrested and charged Jones with Theft of Property 2nd.  

Jones was booked into the DeKalb County Detention Center on Thursday night on a $7,500 bond.

“The Rainsville Police Department appreciates the time and attention that was devoted by the State Bureau of Investigation in this matter”, Chief Smith concluded.
