Male Arrested on Multiple Charges
Across Iowa

DES MOINES, Iowa - On November 16, 2016, Jeff Lee Altmayer, 57, of Ankeny, IA, was arrested and charged with three (3) counts of Enticing a Minor, a Class C Felony; one (1) count of Impersonating a Public Official, an Aggravated Misdemeanor; one (1) count of Possession of a Controlled Substance, a Serious Misdemeanor and one (1) count of Possession of Prescription Drug or Device without a Prescription. These charges stemmed from a November 16th incident in Monona County, IA, in which he attempted to lure a child into his vehicle.

After further investigation into Altmayer by the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation and other Iowa law enforcement agencies, it was determined that he had also committed crimes of the same manner across Iowa. As a result, Altmayer has been charged in two other jurisdictions. The criminal charges that he faces in Jasper County are a result of an August, 17, 2016 incident in Colfax in which he is alleged to have committed one (1) count of Kidnapping in the First Degree, a Class A Felony; one (1) count of Sexual Abuse in the Second Degree, a Class A Felony and one (1) count of Enticing a Child, a Class C Felony.

Altmayer also faces charges in Grundy County from an August 2, 2016 incident in which he was charged with three (3) counts of Enticing a Child, a Class C Felony and one (1) count of Enticing a Minor, a Class D Felony.

The investigation into Altmayer is on-going and additional charges may be forthcoming. The Iowa Attorney General’s Office, Area Prosecutions Division is handling the prosecution of Altmayer.
