A 50-year old Wichita Falls man with a long record of convictions dating back to the early 90s was arrested after police said they found him hiding in an apartment after a robbery at a motel.
Barry Glen Jones was charged with aggravated robbery with a bond of $50,000. He also faces violation of his parole.
Police said just before noon Thursday a man reported that Jones pulled a gun on him in the parking lot of the Wayfarer motel and demanded money.
He said the robber fled when he called 9-1-1.
Police said they later found Jones hiding in an apartment in the 1200 block of Austin.
Jones’ record shows around a dozen convictions including theft, theft of livestock, and forgery.
He has served three terms in prison and been placed on parole three times.
