Student charged in IPad theft

Published 9:47pm Thursday, April 25, 2013

The ongoing investigation involving an inappropriate relationship between a Selma High School teacher and students took another odd turn Wednesday when a Selma High School senior was arrested.

According to information released from the Selma Police Department, Kenneth Dewayne Jones, 19, was arrested in connection with the theft of an IPad from the classroom belonging to teacher Latanglia Williams.

Williams was arrested Friday at Selma High School after a lengthy investigation led to her being charged with a number of felonies from suspected inappropriate relationships with two students.

Selma Chief of Police William T. Riley said Jones reportedly went into the classroom and removed an IPad. The teacher in the room, Riley said, was suspicious of the claims the IPad belonged to Jones.

“The teacher notified school authorities and it was later learned that the IPad was actually the property of the school,” Riley said. “Wednesday, Mr. Jones was questioned by a school official about the whereabouts of the IPad, which was later found in an apartment.”

Riley declined any other information about the theft or this reported theft was in anyway connected to the ongoing investigation involving Williams.

Jones was charged with theft of property second, tampering with physical evidence, hindering prosecution first degree and computer tampering. He was charged and placed in the Dallas County Jail under a $15,000 bond.
