Jason Dwight Drew, 26, Gladbrook, is back in the Tama County jail after being charged last week with three counts of burglary, three counts of neglect of dependant persons, possession of stolen property and 2nd degree theft by the Tama County Sheriff's Office.
He is also accused of probation violation. Bond is $15,000 cash or surety on the burglary and neglect charges and $5,000 cash only on the probation charge.
Drew was arrested after a search warrant was executed at a residence in Gladbrook on July 2. Property allegedly stolen from two Gladbrook businesses, two homes there and a merchant's booth at the Gladbrook Corn Carnival was seized.
Drew received a suspended 10-year prison term in Janaury in Tama County District Court. At that time he faced a series of charges stemming from alleged burglaries which began in April, 2006, and continued to May, 2007.
He pled guilty then to a lone charge of 1st degree theft. The Sheriff's Office had originally charged him with 10 counts of 3rd degree burglary and two theft charges.
