Wanted: Unlawful imprisonment; bank robbery

Nassau police are looking for Chester Jones for questioning in an unlawful imprisonment case in Roosevelt.

On Dec. 23, police said the victim was getting into a vehicle in the area of Washington Place when Jones forced the driver into the passenger seat and drove around for about 12 hours in the Roosevelt area. The victim saw a gun cartridge on the floor, and the suspect told the victim he had a gun, police said.

Jones seemed to be upset by a previous incident. On Sept. 14, police said Jones allegedly assaulted the same victim and took property, and the victim called police.

Three days after the car incident in December, police said Jones tried to get into the victim's home but was unsuccessful.

In addition to his association with Roosevelt, Jones is known to frequent Long Beach and Far Rockaway. He is described as 49 years old, about 6 feet tall, 200 pounds with short black hair, brown eyes and a mustache. Nassau police said he is also wanted for questioning by New York City police for his involvement in a home invasion in the area of the 32nd Precinct - Lenox Avenue between 132nd and 139th streets in Manhattan.

Anyone with information on Jones may contact Crime Stoppers at 800-244-8477. All calls will be kept confidential.
