Oxford man formally charged with violating no-contact order in North Liberty stalking case

An Oxford man arrested in Washington County on theft charges has now been formally charged with violating a no-contact order in a North Liberty stalking case.

58-year-old Jimmy Frees of South Augusta Avenue was booked into the Johnson County Jail just after 9:00 Tuesday night. He was arrested Sunday afternoon near Sinclair Tractor on Highway 92. Frees is accused of stealing a trail cam from an address on Red Oak Avenue…between Washington and Crawfordsville…just before 2:15 Sunday afternoon. Before it went off-line, the camera reportedly captured both Frees’ image and that of his vehicle.

Frees had an active warrant after he allegedly used social media to contact a protected party in North Liberty on the night of November 7th.

Frees was arrested last month after North Liberty Police say he was stalking a woman by disguising himself with a wig and showing up at her residence. He also allegedly left a journal at her house that contained entries of specific threats to kill or harm her. He’s charged with Stalking and 1st Degree Harassment in that case. If convicted, he could face a maximum of seven years in prison.
