Rockwall man in camouflage clothing, face paint arrested for possessing explosives

ROCKWALL – A Rockwall man dressed in camouflage clothing with camouflage paint on his face was arrested Wednesday night by Denton police on charges of possessing the components of explosives after they found him with a quantity of gasoline, rags, beer bottles and a lighter.

Jason Jones, 35, was on his way to harm his former wife’s  boyfriend, according to a police report

The incident began about 10 pm when officers responded to a woman in the 2200 block of E. Sherman Dr. who said she had just been notified by Rockwall police that a man was on his way to Denton to harm her son.

She said the man was the former husband of her son’s girlfriend.

When her son heard the news, she said he left and returned intoxicated, and she was worried. She said he then went into the backyard to make Molotov cocktails to defend his house against the other man. Officers found him agitated.

He said the Rockwall man had been indicted because he and several other men had broken into a house in Rockwall where they beat and severely injured him.

Jones has since been released on bail, said a Denton police officer.
