Suspect With Multiple Charges Arrested in Laundromat by U.S. Marshals Task Force



Greensboro, NC – Today, at approximately 11:00 AM, Bobby Lee Jones Jr., a 24 year old, was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Joint Fugitive Task Force (JFTF) out of Greensboro. Jones was wanted by the Greensboro Police Department for shooting into occupied property, possession of a firearm by felon, assault with a deadly weapon and discharging a firearm in city limits. Jones is no stranger to law enforcement as he was previously arrested by the JFTF on June 08, 2015, for conspiracy robbery with a dangerous weapon.

On November 17, 2015, at the 800 block of Pasadena Street in Greensboro, it is alleged that Jones and his ex-girlfriend were engaged in a verbal altercation that escalated. During the altercation Jones pulled out a handgun and fired multiple shots into a vehicle that was occupied by a relative of the ex-girlfriend. No one was injured during the incident and subsequently, Jones fled the scene.

This morning, investigative efforts led the JFTF to 1411 West Gate City Boulevard in Greensboro. Their efforts paid off when members of the JFTF positively identified Jones inside a laundromat. The JFTF surrounded the area and converged on Jones taking him into custody without incident. Jones was transported to the Guilford County Jail where he is currently being held.
