      A Level 3 Registered Sex Offender (high risk to re-offend) was arrested this afternoon for Public Intoxication inside the Sheriff’s Office.  MATTHIAS JONES, 36 years old of Mountain Home, came to the Sheriff’s Office to update some of his registration information. 

     When speaking with Deputy Edge, the Records Management Coordinator, she detected an odor of alcoholic beverage on JONES.  This suspicion was confirmed by the Sheriff.  JONES denied consuming alcohol, but registered approximately 0.14% blood alcohol content on a portable breath test device.   

     MATTHIAS JONES was taken to the Detention Center on a charge of Public Intoxication with a bond of $220.00.  He will appear in District Court at a later date.
