-Charge reported was in error-

September 10, 2019
Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

The Arrest Press Log provided to The News-Herald by the Tama County Sheriff's Office on Dec. 26, 2018, contained a clerical error of one of the charges against Donald Anthony Tomlinson, 50, then of Tama.

Tomlinson was charged originally on Dec. 20, 2018 with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, possession of more than 47 grams of marijuana in violation of the drug tax stamp law and commit prohibited acts by being in possession of marijuana, individual baggies of marijuana and a digital scale by the Tama County Sheriff's Office.

The Press arrest Log had listed Tomlinson's charge as manufacture / deliver methamphetamine to a minor which was not correct.

A County Attorney's information filed on Jan. 7, 2019, cited Thompson for manufacture ,deliver or possess with intent to deliver marijuana, fail to affix a drug tax stamp and keep, permit or maintain a premises or other environment for drugs.

On Aug 22 a jury trial on these charges was reset for Oct. 21 in Tama County District Court in Toledo by Judge Ian K. Thornhill.
