Police still trying to locate bank robbery suspect in stolen vehicle

Orange County Sheriff’s detectives are asking the public for help locating a man who spent eight years in prison for bank robbery before he was released last week, stole a car, and robbed another bank.

According to OCSO, on Thursday, June 2, Jones allegedly walked into the Truist Bank at 11200 S Orange Blossom Trail, robbed the bank, and forcibly carjacked a vehicle before fleeing the scene.

Jones was released from prison on Wednesday, June 1, after serving an eight-year sentence for bank robbery stemming from a case in 2013, according to police.

Jones is wanted on charges of armed bank robbery and carjacking.

The vehicle that Jones may still be using is a dark gray 2014 Toyota Camry with Florida tag DVST26

Authorities say it is possible that Jones has ditched the car and that he is traveling by bus.

“If you see him, call 911. If you have any information on where he may be, call 407-836-4357,” reads a social media post from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
