A former jail employee in north Iowa has been accused of stealing money from an inmate.
Forty-four-year-old Mason Billings of Akron, Iowa, has been charged with one count of theft by unlawful taking.
Court documents say Billings took $400 in September from an inmate booked at Dakota County Jail. Billings was a jail employee at the time and the money had been turned over to jail personnel.
Billings was arrested Friday and is now being held at the same county jail. His next court appearance is scheduled for Tuesday.
