St. Cloud Man Indicted On Weapons Charges

jesselamondjonesMINNEAPOLIS — A federal grand jury has indicted a St. Cloud man on weapons charges.

34-year-old Jesse Lamond Jones is accused of being a felon in possession of a gun after police discovered a 9-millimeter handgun at his residence last May.

Jones was already booked into the Benton County Jail on suspicion of being the triggerman in two drive-by shooting incidents last spring. It’s those incidents that led police to Jones and the gun believed to be used in the shootings.

Jones has prior convictions including second-degree burglary, third degree assault and simple robbery.

Because those crimes were violent in nature, Jones is subject to the federal weapons charges. If convicted, he faces a minimum of 15 years in federal prison with a maximum of life behind bars.
