Wayne Jones, 49, earned over $100,000 yearly as a steel worker, but his debts kept piling up due to a gambling problem. On Thursday, in an attempt to fix his financial situation, Jones decided to bet everything at a casino in Detroit. After losing it all, he allegedly decided to rob two persons of their belongings.
According to police raport, he carjacked two women at gunpoint in the casino garage and demanded them to hand over their belongings, including cellphones, cash, house keys etc. After driving for a while, he ordered them out of the car in a desolate area and took off in the car.
The women walked for approximately two miles before meeting a man who took them to the police station. Investigators were able to identify Jones through the casino player card activity and surveillance footage. Jones was arrested at his workplace around 3.30 p.m. on Saturday and is currently being held on a $100,00 bond.
