The Tishamingo County sheriff told media Monday that Jones was stopped when his vehicle matched a description given out by Tupelo cops. He admitted to having pot and pills in the car and confirmed he had been in Tupelo.
Cops were looking for a man, six ft. tall, late 30s to early 40s, who walked into the bank, handed the teller a note and left with cash. Cops now tell media Jones matched that description.
They also say he could be connected with a bank robbery in Booneville from last week and one in Iuka in August.
He was charged with drug possession in Tishamingo County. WTVA reports he has not yet been charged in the Monday hold-up.
