- On September 17th, Jeffrey Todd Jones, age 49 of Pahrump, Nevada
was arrested, by city of Lincoln police officers, in reference to a
case that began on August 30th when a 55-year-old man was found
unconscious on the floor of his residence.
In Nevada, Nye County Sheriff’s dispatchers received a 911 call
on August 30th regarding a male victim who was found in critical
condition inside of his home. Paramedics from the Pahrump Valley
Fire and Rescue services responded as well as deputies from the Nye
County Sheriff’s Office. Although his medical condition was
uncertain at the time, the investigation revealed that the male was
a victim of a severe physical altercation.
The victim was flown by Mercy Air to an area hospital.
During the subsequent investigation by Nye County Sheriff’s
detectives, it was discovered that suspect, Jeffrey Jones, was
involved in the violent encounter and had since relocated to an
unknown location in Lincoln.

as well as the Lincoln Police Department.
On September 17th, Jones was located and taken into custody by
Lincoln City Police Officers. Lincoln Police Chief Paul Adams said
the suspect was known to Lincoln Police and was spotted driving a
motorcycle on Fifth Street in the city. Officers stopped Jones and
subsequently arrested him on the Nevada warrant without incident.
