The Police Commissioner Dr Carl Williams says there is no information yet whether the fugitive being sought by American law enforcement, Marlon Jones, is in Jamaica.

Jones who goes by several aliases is believed to be a Jamaican.

He has been listed as one of the 10 Most Wanted Fugitives by the US Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI).

The FBI is offering a reward of US$100,000 or nearly J$13 million for information leading to Jones' capture.

Commissioner Williams says the Jamaican government had been working with US authorities trying to capture Jones.

The FBI says Jones has an extensive violent criminal history.

He has been charged with crimes in the state of New Jersey under the name ‘Rasheen Brantley’ and served time in New York under the name ‘Floyd Evans’.

Jones is also known as ‘Anthony Howard’, ‘Anthony Winter’ and variations of those names.

He is about 5'10", weighs about 160 pounds and has provided dates of birth ranging from 1970 to 1981.

The FBI also says ‘Jones’ is wanted in connection with the early-morning killing of four people, including Jamaican gang leader Robert ‘Rodigan’ Davis, in California on October 15 this year.

Ten people were also injured in that shooting.
