ST. LOUIS – A suspected St. Louis burglar was taken into custody over the weekend, months after the city court released him on his own recognizance in April for an armed robbery.

According to multiple probable cause statements from the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, the armed robbery took place on April 6 in the 5700 block of Michigan Avenue, in the Carondelet neighborhood.

Police claim Terry A. Jones, 49, stole a man’s car at gunpoint. Jones was arrested a short time later and charged with first-degree robbery and armed criminal action. He was released on bond, placed under house arrest with GPS monitoring, and ordered to appear in court on May 9.

Jones failed to appear in court on May 9 and an arrest warrant was issued.

Police claim that on May 20, Jones and a female accomplice broke into an apartment in the 2800 block of Itaska Street and stole electrical equipment, a TV monitor, and three Ring cameras.

On May 31, police claim Jones and a female accomplice entered a maintenance office in the 4700 block of South Broadway and stole a three-ton jack and three space heaters. The break-in and theft were recorded on surveillance video.

Two days later, Jones and several others went to a Family Dollar store in the 3800 block of South Grand Boulevard after hours and attempted to pry open both the store safe and ATM. When that didn’t work, they stole large quantities of merchandise from the store and left in a white SUV Lexus RX300. The theft was recorded on surveillance.

Police claim Jones broke into another Family Dollar in the 4200 block of South Broadway on June 4 by smashing open the front window. Jones damaged the alarm control pad, two locked cases, and a safe. He stole merchandise off the shelves, stuffed them into plastic bags, and left.

Finally, on June 7, Jones allegedly went back to the Family Dollar on South Grand after hours. Officers arrived at the store in time to catch Jones leaving with a white trash bag filled with cigarette cartons and other merchandise.

The St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s Office charged Jones with five counts of second-degree burglary, four counts of stealing – $750 or more, and three counts of first-degree property damage. He remains jailed without bond.
