Suspect in footage wanted in connection with attempted murder, burglary

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Surveillance footage captured the images of a man wanted in connection with an attempted murder and a burglary case.

The Richland County Sheriff's Department released the footage from both incidents on Wednesday morning.

Calling him a "danger to citizens", Sheriff Leon Lott said in a news release that deputies are seeking 26-year-old Stanley Jones.

Lott says in one of the incidents, Jones kicked in the door at a residence on Brookfield Road in an effort to steal money and drugs back on Feb. 4.

Instead, Lott said, Jones shot the resident, who was transported to Palmetto Health Richland in serious condition.

In the second incident, Lott said Jones broke into a home on Woodbranch Road on Jan. 9 and stole a wallet and the outside video surveillance camera.

If you have any information about these cases or the whereabouts of Stanley Jones, you are asked to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
