A former Kokomo man being sought for more than a year by the Howard County Sheriff Department has been arrested in Palm Beach, Fla.

Jimmie Ernest Jones Jr., 35, formerly of the 500 block of East Sycamore Street, was taken into custody on a Howard Superior Court 2 bench warrant for a petition to revoke a suspended sentence on a class C felony attempted armed robbery conviction.

The warrant was issued Nov. 10, 2005.

Jones, who waived extradition to Howard County, is being held at the Palm Beach County Jail in West Palm Beach, Howard County Sheriff Marty Talbert said.

Talbert said he was given a Feb. 15 deadline to assume custody of Jones.

Upon his return to the Howard County jail, Jones will be held on a $25,000 cash bail.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of any wanted person is asked to contact the Howard County Sheriff Department at (765) 457-1105, or the Central Indiana Crimestoppers at (800) 922-5378.
