Sex Offender Arrested by U.S. Marshals After a Long Run

Oklahoma City, OK – Due to the collaborative efforts of the United States Marshals Service Metro Fugitive Task Force (MFTF), the Western District of Louisiana sub office in Alexandria, LA., and the Oklahoma City U.S. Marshals Sex Offender Investigation Unit, fugitive Sex Offender Stanley Jones was arrested today. An arrest warrant was issued out of the state of Louisiana for failure to register in 2013, but Jones was already wanted in San Diego for failure to register as far back as 2006. Jones’ original offense was a 1996 forcible rape change in San Diego, California. Based on Jones original offense, he has a lifetime registration requirement in the State of Oklahoma. Jones is also being investigated by the U.S. Marshals Sex Offender Investigations Branch for Adam Walsh violations..

On March 28, 2014, information was provided by Deputy U.S. Marshals in Alexandria that Jones might be hiding out in Oklahoma City. In addition, he was said to be possibly utilizing a false name and social security number. Subsequent interviews provided vital information that Jones worked and resided on the northwest side of the Oklahoma City metro area. Task force officers conducted a brief surveillance, identified the suspect, and took him into custody without incident.

The U.S. Marshals task force consists of law enforcement officers from the U.S. Marshals, Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF), Oklahoma City Police Department, Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics, Oklahoma Department of Corrections, and the Sheriff’s Departments for Cleveland, Canadian, and Pottawatomie Counties. The main objective of the task force is to seek out and arrest violent offenders with outstanding federal and state warrants.

The U.S. Marshals Service, America’s oldest Federal Law Enforcement Agency, arrested more than 36,000 federal fugitives, 86,700 state and local fugitives, and 11,800 sex offenders in fiscal year 2013. Our investigative network, techniques, and capabilities allows for our ability to track and apprehend fugitives worldwide who attempt to evade police capture.
