On Monday, September 21, 2015, Prosecutor Kym L. Worthy charged Wayne Darrell Jones, 49, of Redford, in connection with carjacking a 68-year-old Sterling Heights woman and a 78-year-old Clinton Township woman as they were leaving the Motor City Casino. On September 17, 2015 at 5:30 a.m., it is alleged that the defendant got into the car with the two women and pulled out a hand gun, demanded money, and took their purses. He ordered the 68-year-old woman to drive the car and when they reached a field near Schoolcraft and Appoline Street he ordered the women out of the car and drove away. The women walked approximately two miles until they met a good Samaritan who helped them to safety at the Second Police Precinct.

Investigation by the Michigan State Police Gaming Division and the Detroit Police Department led to the September 19, 2015 arrest of the defendant by the Commercial Auto Theft crew. He was charged with two counts each of: Carjacking, Armed Robbery Unlawful Imprisonment and Felony Firearm. Jones was arraigned late yesterday and received a $100,000 cash/surety bond. His probable cause conference will be held on September 28, 2015 at 8:30 a.m. and his preliminary examination will be held on October 5, 2015 at 9:00 a.m.
