Live 5 Most Wanted fugitive captured

Posted: Updated:

Authorities have captured 27-year-old Christopher Jones who was wanted on charges of property crime enhancement, which is a more serious form of shoplifting.

 "He likes to take merchandise from stores. Walmart is one of his favorites and Home Depot," said Detective Karen MacDonald.

MacDonald said Jones stole computers from expensive tools from the two stores.

"He heads for the nearest emergency exit and runs out the door. Loads the stuff in the car and takes off," she explained.

The detective said Jones was caught on store surveillance cameras, but still took the items.

"You have a need I guess, to fill it and the only way you can fill it is by stealing, then that's what you do," MacDonald said.
