Anamosa Police Believe Man in Jones Co. Jail Connected with Meth Lab Fire

JONES COUNTY, Iowa - Anamosa police believe a man currently in the Jones County Jail is connected to a meth lab fire in Anamosa two weeks ago.

U.S. Marshals arrested Zackery Smock in Belle Plain on a separate felony warrant on Monday. Smock was convicted for a meth lab fire in Anamosa in 2012. Police said Smock violated his probation.

Police Chief Bob Simonson said Smock was there when a fire broke out at 406 North Sales Street in Anamosa on Friday, March 7. The State Fire Marshal's Office ruled a meth lab started the fire.

Police Simonson said early Friday afternoon Smock had not been charged in the recent incident. The investigation is ongoing.
