Antonio Jones, 32, of the block of 1000 West 14th Street, Chicago was arrested Monday December 11, 2017 by Arlington Heights police investigators with awareness and assistance of Chicago Department. Arlington Heights police kept Jones’ home and cell phone location under surveillance, before making an arrest in connection with an Arlington Heights home invasion in May 2017. Antonio Jones was also charged with possession of a controlled substance when illegal drugs were found at his home.

Antonio Jones is the alleged drug dealer of a drug-consuming relative of an elderly couple that were victims of a home invasion on Brittany Drive in Arlington Heights. The couple’s relative told Antonio Jones that a large sum of money was in the couple’s house. The relative was living with the couple at the time, and had mentioned a bag of cash to Jones only several days before the home invasion.

Shortly after learning of the large sum of money in the house on Brittany Drive, Jones and another man entered the home, wearing masks about 11:25 p.m. Wednesday, May 17, 2017. Police and prosecutors say the two men held the 85-year old man and his 78-year old wife at gunpoint at their residence, forced them to the floor, and acquired $50,000 in the basement at their residence. The whereabouts of the relative at the time of the crime was not known, or was not revealed by police. The elderly residents were not injured, and the suspects were gone within five minutes. The men fled with the bag containing $50,000, and the couple were able to call police after they left.

Police have not mentioned whether the relative faced any charges or whether a plea bargain was involved. However, Arlington Heights police did reveal that the victims’ relative gave police the cellphone number for Antonio Jones, who police were able to track via wireless cellphone and cell tower technology. Jones’ location was tracked by the cell phone number provided by the victims’ relative, who revealed to police during investigation that Jones was his drug dealer. Also, during the police investigation, the victims’ relative revealed to police that he had mentioned the large sum of money to Jones before the home invasion.

At a court hearing, it was revealed that Antonio Jones’ girlfriend purchased a new BMW with $29,000 cash the day after the May 17, 2017 home invasion.

When Jones was arrested Monday, December 11, 2017, he was found in possession of 51 small plastic Baggies containing a substance that was discovered to be heroin, according to Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney Alyssa Grissom.

At Rolling Meadows Cook County Circuit Court Wednesday December 13, 2017, Antonio Jones (5’6″ 180 LBS) was ordered held without bail, charged with home invasion and robbery [720 ILCS 5/19-6(a)(3) HOME INVASION/FIREARM], and charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

As of Wednesday, no one else had been charged. Jones’ next court date was is scheduled for January 5, 2018.
