WILLIAMSON - A local man has found himself back behind bars after he was re-arrested Sept. 4 on several charges that had been dismissed in Mingo County Magistrate Court on Aug. 29.

Jeffrey R. Timmons, 26, was arrested and charged with petit larceny, tampering with a motor vehicle, four felony counts of computer fraud and a new charge of obstructing an officer by the Williamson Police Department, according to a criminal complaint filed in Mingo County Magistrate Court.

Police allege Timmons was walking along the sidewalk on West 3rd Avenue in Williamson on July 15 when he spotted a purse inside a vehicle. He proceeded to leave and dressed into a black hoodie. When he returned, he opened the car door, grabbed the purse and fled the scene on foot, according to the complaint.

The purse contained a wallet with approximately $300 cash, and a total value of all items taken were $725.

He was allegedly caught on video surveillance from a nearby residence.

Less than a week later on July 21, police say Timmons attempted to use the victim's credit card and to make four online purchases from several retailers for a total value of $1,450.

Timmons was previously arrested by the WPD on the charges on Aug. 20, but the charges were dismissed without prejudice in his hearing at Mingo County Magistrate Court on Aug. 29 when the arresting officer could not attend the hearing due to personal reasons.

WPD re-filed the charges shortly afterward in Magistrate Court, and warrants were re-issued for Timmons' arrest. He picked up the obstructing an officer charge when he allegedly would not comply with officers attempting to take him into custody the second time around.

He was arraigned by Mingo County Magistrate Jim Harvey and was sent to Southwestern Regional Jail with bail set at $20,000.
