Griffin, GA (February 9, 2023) – The GBI has arrested and charged Asia Jones, age 26, of Hampton, GA, with one count of misdemeanor theft by deception and one count of violation of oath by public officer. On June 17, 2022, the Griffin Police Department asked the GBI to investigate allegations that Jones, a Griffin Police Department officer, was falsifying timecard information pertaining to a part-time job. Jones was booked at the Spalding County Jail.

Preliminary information indicates that Jones, while employed as a Griffin Police Department officer, was scheduled to work a part-time law enforcement job with an apartment complex in Griffin. Jones submitted timecard information claiming hours worked that Jones had not worked. Jones resigned from the Griffin Police Department following an internal investigation into these allegations in June 2022.
