HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - He has two warrants out for his arrest, but authorities haven't been able to track him down. They're hoping his distinctive tattoos will help lead to his capture.
April 7, 2005. Police officers responded to a call of two men in a stolen vehicle on Ohai Street in Wahiawa. Authorities identified the driver as Thomas Jones.
"He was arrested for auto theft. While being searched due to his arrest there were drugs found on his persons and he was placed under arrest for promoting dangerous drugs and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia" said Sgt. Kim Buffett of Crimestoppers.
The next month police were called to a robbery at the North Shore Marketplace. They spotted two men walking down the street. One of them fit the description of the robbery suspect.
"The male that fit the description ran off on foot, and the male detained was Thomas Jones. He had nothing to do with the robbery but while being searched, drugs were found on his person."
Officers arrested Jones for drug offenses. Now the 24- year-old is wanted for two $20,000 probation revocation warrants. He's known to frequent the Wahiawa area.
"He has nine prior convictions and they're for dangerous drugs and thefts."
Jones is described as 5'9", weighing 210 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. He has multiple tattoos including the Hawaiian island chain on his neck.
"On his right shoulder he has ‘mom'. Left calf he has Hawaiian triangles, right calf he has ‘Jones'. On his left shoulder he has ‘crip', the word ‘crip' with a cross. On his right arm, skulls and flames. And on his left hand he has the initials ‘C', ‘T' and an eight-ball."
Helping police catch him could earn you a reward of up to $1,000. If you know the whereabouts of this Wanted Wednesday fugitive, call Crimestoppers at 955-8300.
