At around 3:30 p.m. Sunday, troopers responded to the Valero gas station located at 7865 Old Beach Road for a report of a suspicious person. When troopers arrived on scene, they made contact with 28-year-old Karl Jones, who was discovered to have active felony warrants for the theft of three separate motor vehicles, one of which had reportedly been stolen from the same Valero parking lot on October 6th.
