Police capture suspected bank robber in Pullman

A fugitive bank robbery suspect was arrested in Pullman after a short standoff Wednesday evening. Kevin Jones, who was hiding in a Pullman woman’s apartment, was wanted for five counts of bank robbery and has convictions for promoting prostitution and gun possession, according to a “Washington’s Most Wanted” news release. Jones was featured on “Washington’s Most Wanted,” a weekly television show, Feb. 25 and 26. A viewer tip to Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound led to his arrest. After receiving the tip, Seattle detective Len Carver contacted the Pullman Police Department and their SWAT team surrounded the apartment, the news release said. After a brief standoff, officers took Jones into custody. He appeared Thursday before a federal magistrate and will be returned to Seattle by the U.S. Marshal.
