TUESDAY UPDATE: 41-year-old Raymond Jones of Colorado is behind bars at the Greene County Jail following an arrest Monday night.

Detective James Williams of the Paragould Police Department tells Region 8 news, Jones had a felony warrant and stolen vehicle out of the state of Colorado. 

Williams said the criminal investigation department was tipped off about Jones being in the area, leading to his arrest.

Jones is expected to be extradited to Colorado and additional charges from the Paragould Police Department are pending.

The man's identity was not released Monday night, pending possible charges out of Paragould, Snyder said.
