Police Arrest Rochester Man With Warrant in Armed Robbery Case
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News)- Rochester Police have arrested a man with an active arrest warrant related to an armed robbery case.
The criminal complaint filed Wednesday says an officer was conducting surveillance in an area police believed 22-year-old Jayvon Jones-Shields was residing in. Police then spotted him riding in a vehicle on 41st St. Northwest and arrested him on Tuesday afternoon.
Court records indicate the warrant was issued for Jones-Shields after he failed to appear at a court hearing on August 25 related to an armed robbery case in October 2021.
The criminal complaint says Jones-Shields had eight fentanyl-laced M30 pills on him during his Tuesday arrest. He now also faces a drug possession charge.
