Remember last week when a man used a metal pipe to rob a Fort Collins gas station and sent three people to the hospital? The suspect has been on the run, but he was arrested this afternoon!

According to the Fort Collins Police,

On Wednesday afternoon, October 24, Fort Collins police arrested 28-year-old Christopher Wayne Jones (D.O.B. 10/12/84) of Fort Collins for the October 18 armed robbery of the One Stop Gas Station, 2025 S. College Avenue.

Apparently police contacted Jones this morning and he voluntarily came to the police station for an interview and was taken into custody around 4PM this afternoon.

The charges against him:

  • Aggravated Robbery, a Class 3 Felony,
  • 1st Degree Assault, a Class 3 Felony,
  • 1st Degree Burglary, a Class 3 Felony, and
  •  Theft, a Class 4 Felony.

All charges are merely accusations and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

All three injured victims in the assault and robbery were treated and released from the hospital.

If Jones is guilty, I'm glad he is off of our streets.
