College Avenue.
Jones was contacted by Fort Collins police this morning at approximately 8:30 a.m. and voluntarily came to the police station for a consensual interview where he was later arrested around 4 p.m. Jones is presently in the custody of the Larimer County jail on the following charges:
- Aggravated Robbery, a Class 3 Felony,
- 1st Degree Assault, a Class 3 Felony,

Three people (two men and one woman ages 47, 29, & 45 respectively) were assaulted during the robbery and sustained non-life threatening injuries. All three victims were transported to the local hospital where they were treated and released.
Valuable tips from the community coupled with investigative work identified Jones as the suspect. Police believe Jones acted independently and do not believe anyone else was involved in the robbery.
