PIERCE COUNTY – Orion Jones called 911 and surrendered the day after his case aired on 6/4/16 on Washington’s Most Wanted. He told the call taker he wanted to turn himself in. Pierce County deputies responded and took him into custody without incident.  Jones is WMW Capture #775.

Convicted child predator, Orion Jones, is wanted in Pierce County.

His sex crimes started young: Sexually assaulting a 5 year old girl when he was 11. Four years later, he was convicted of preying on a three year old girl.

“These are girls that don’t know that people do this type of activity to them, so they’re very vulnerable and they become victims, unwillingly to them, to people they trust,” says Pierce County Det. Ed Troyer.

Now he’s 20 years old, tagged a level three sex offender – the worst of the worst — and failing to register as a sex offender in Pierce County.
