A Jamestown man faces a Class B felony charge of theft of property among allegations he used a business credit card for personal use.

Dell Eugene Horn, who is age 51 or 52, is accused of theft in excess of $10,000 but less than $50,000. The affidavit of probable cause said he made personal purchases on a credit card issued for his use by his employer, Jamestown Community Corrections, between 2017 and 2019.

Horn was placed on unpaid administrative leave in October from his position as director of Jamestown Community Corrections pending the investigation, according to Pam Fosse, member of the Jamestown Community Corrections board of directors.

Horn made an initial appearance before Judge Cherie Clark on Wednesday. Horn was released on $2,000 bond. A preliminary hearing has been set for April 8.
