Iowa warrant issued for man accidentally released

DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — Authorities in Scott County are looking for a man they accidentally released from custody.

The Quad-City Times reports (http://bit.ly/15r8pvK ) Dale Blumer was released Thursday on an appeal bond in Scott County District Court. A bench warrant was later issued for him, and he remains free as of Friday afternoon.

A judge resentenced Blumer Thursday on a conviction of making methamphetamine at a Davenport day care. It was nearly two months after he was accidentally released on probation for the same case.

Blumer was taken into custody after the hearing Thursday, but he was released after posting a $65,000 appeal bond.

The judge amended her sentencing with a handwritten note that revoked the bond. She wrote Blumer’s count of child endangerment and meth exposure did not allow bond on appeal.
