Update: Inmate who walked off work detail arrested

St. Petersburg, Florida -- Update: Pinellas Sheriff's deputies have located and arrested an inmate who walked away from his work clean-up detail Tuesday.

Investigators say 29-year-old Jonathan Jones was assigned to a work crew conducting a clean-up detail at the baseball field located at 4145 34th Street North in St. Petersburg (behind the VFW).

Deputies say Jones walked away from the work detail that was being supervised by jail staff.

Jones is a non-violent offender, with no prior history of discipline at the jail. He has been arrested multiple times since 2003, primarily on drug-related charges. He is currently serving a 364-day sentence on drug-related charges.

The Pinellas Sheriff's Office says he was arrested during a traffic stop on 58th Street, just north of 54th Avenue in Kenneth City.
