(SALEM, Ore.) - Salem Police were called to the scene of an armed robbery Thursday night at Coffee in Motion, on Mission in South Salem.
Corporal Dennis Keena with Salem Police, says a number of officers responded.
"The person involved had a handgun and demanded cash from the clerk."
It took about an hour and a half for police to locate the suspect, Keena said, with the help of a police dog.
"We set up a perimeter and used a canine to track the suspect to a house here on Rural."
He says good team work from police and cooperation from the witness at the armed robbery helped officers get an idea who the suspect may be.
"We eventually came up with the name of an individual who might possibly be involved, the person was inside the house and we arrested him for the armed robbery," Keena said.
22-year old Steven Edward Jones Jr. was arrested for first-degree Armed Robbery. However after two months, he was released from jail because he was not the actual suspect in the robbery.
He was transported to the Marion County Jail, and held until just before the birth of his first child.
Note: The video that accompanied this story has been removed, because of the fact that Steven Edward Jones Jr. was not the suspect involved in this crime.
