FUGITIVE CAPTURED January 25, 2018 —
Edmonds Police and the North Sound Metro SWAT Team arrested Marysville fugitive, Dennis ‘Denny’ Jones, and a 43-year-old man on Thursday for Robbery, Assault and Investigation of Kidnapping.

Officers responded to a 911 call around 1:45am by a 31-year old Everett man saying he had been robbed at gunpoint and his girlfriend had been kidnapped at the Americas Best Value Inn on Highway 99 in Edmonds.

Officers located the man and got him medical attention at an Edmonds hospital for a broken finger and facial injuries sustained in the attack. He provided information that led officers to an address in Everett where a suspect vehicle was located. Everett Police officers assisted Edmonds officers with surveillance of the suspect residence in hopes of seeing the woman and ensuring her safety.

It was also known that one of the suspects, Denny Jones, had been actively evading law enforcement in the last few weeks and was wanted by the Department of Corrections and Marysville Police. Jones was featured last weekend on Washington’s Most Wanted. He was known to be ‘armed and dangerous’ before this investigation unfolded. The North Sound Metro SWAT Team activated and Edmonds detectives obtained a search warrant for the Everett residence.

Around 10:45am, the SWAT team approached the residence. The 43-year old came out and was taken into custody without incident.  Jones and the woman were not located at that time.

As the investigation continued, officers located him and the 26-year old woman at an apartment complex south of Everett around 1:30pm. Officers say she is safe and being interviewed by Edmonds detectives.

The North Sound Metro SWAT Team includes members from the police departments of: Edmonds, Lynnwood, Mountlake Terrace, Mukilteo, Mill Creek, Bothell, Monroe, Redmond, Kirkland and Lake Forest Park.

Denny Jones is Washington’s Most Wanted Capture #952. ​


Marysville Police are asking for the public’s help to find Dennis ‘Denny’ Jones.

The convicted felon fled from officers Tuesday night. “If he sees a cop car, if he sees a squad car, whether it’s got it’s lights are on or not, it’s on. He’s gonna go and he’s gonna go fast,” said Sgt. Pete Shove with Marysville Police.

Jones has a no-bail felony warrant for Escape Community Custody from Department of Corrections on an original charge of Possession of a Controlled Substance.

“Number one, he’s moving some weight when it comes to the narcotics activity. Number two, any time he thinks he’s being sought or he’s got a warrant like this, his driving and the pursuits he kicks off are extremely dangerous to the public, not to mention he’s a convicted felon. We have reason to believe he’s armed with a firearm. That’s not who we want walking around the streets running amok,” said Sgt. Shove.

Dennis ‘Denny’ Jones is 46 years old, 6’3”, 272 pounds, has hazel eyes and a scar on his right hand.

“I can’t stress enough that Mr. Jones is unpredictable.  You don’t want to approach this guy. He’s dangerous,” said Sgt. Shove.

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 to anyone who can tell officers where to find him. It is anonymous. You will never be asked to give your name.
