Deputies seek suspect in 3 Columbia-area crimes
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Richland County sheriff's deputies are looking for a man suspected of several crimes, including a fatal home invasion.
Sheriff Leon Lott said Wednesday that authorities are looking for 26-year-old Stanley Jones.
Lott says Jones kicked in the door of a home Feb. 4, looking for money and drugs and shot a man. Coroner Gary Watts says that man, 29-year-old Tresvon Coker, died at a hospital Tuesday.
Lott says Jones is also accused of breaking into a home Jan. 9, stealing a wallet and damaging the property. Last week, deputies say Jones robbed a store by holding an employee at knifepoint.
Lott says Jones is also wanted in connection with robberies at three other Columbia businesses.
