A former officer with the Rainsville Police Department, John Casey Jones, was arrested Thursday evening by agents with the Alabama Bureau of Investigation on a second degree theft of a controlled substance charge. He's accused of stealing Hydrocodone, according the arrest warrant that was issued.

On October 28, the Rainsville Police Chief Kevin Smith received a formal complaint against John Casey Jones. After reviewing the complaint, Smith contacted the Alabama Bureau of Investigation with a request for a third-party formal investigation.

Jones was released approximately an hour after his arrest after posting a $7,500 bond.
