Tip from billboard leads to suspect's arrest

TAMPA, Fla. (970 WFLA) – Tampa Police officers said a billboard helped locate and lead to the arrest of 37-year-old Christopher Jones.

Police said a citizen saw Jones' picture on a Clear Channel billboard and immediately notified law enforcement.

Police said that tip led police officers and U.S. Marshals to a duplex in Lakeland early Monday morning.

Officials said Jones refused to surrender from the duplex and tunneled through the attic to an adjacent unit, but police said they ended up finding him hiding under the sink.

Police said Jones was taken to the Hillsborough County Jail and faces charges including sexual battery.
