SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

A local man has been charged after police reportedly found a steak knife hidden in his coat.

Octavious Jones, 24, was charged Sunday with possession of a weapon in a correctional facility.

Iowa City police officers responded to a call from 2024 Davis St. about a weapons offence. Jones was seen walking away from the scene, the police complaint said. Officials asked Jones to stop, but he ignored the officials and continued to walk away.

Jones struggled with police officers and refused to put his hands behind his back. The police complaint said he smelled strongly of an alcoholic beverage, had bloodshot watery eyes, and admitted to drinking too much.

Upon arriving to the jail, the police complaint said, a jail deputy had discovered a steak knife under Jones’ left arm. The knife was concealed in a self-made pocket in Jones’ coat. Jones admitted to taking the knife from his brother during an altercation.

Possession of a weapon in a correctional facility is a Class-C felony.
