Not The Dallas Cowboys Owner: Jerry Jones, 22, was nabbed by violent crime detectives on patrol in the area of Union and Steamboat streets. Jones drew the detectives’ attention as he peddled away from them on a bike down Power Street out of sight. When detectives rolled down Power Street, they spotted Jones near the back of a crashed car with the trunk open. He allegedly became startled when he saw the boys in blue, shut the trunk and rode off toward Lamberton Street. Cops saw him jump off his bike and walk away holding his pants pocket. He was stopped as detectives investigated claiming Jones made unspecified comments that made cops think there were drugs in the crashed car. Police wouldn’t reveal exactly what Jones said to the detectives who went back to the crashed vehicle and recovered 200 bags of heroin and a digital scale. Jones apparently had the car keys and $184 in cash that was seized when cops searched him.
Plea: Deon Owensby, 42, of Trenton, admitted to possessing a federal agency identification card without authorization and using it during multiple traffic stops. Owensby, a former IRS attorney, pleaded guilty Tuesday to knowingly possessing an official identification card of a federal agency without authorization. Prosecutors
say Owensby obtained an official IRS ID card during his employment as an attorney with the agency. But the card was supposed to be returned to the IRS upon the end of his employment in April 2015. Instead, officials say, Owensby continued to possess the ID and displayed it during multiple law enforcement stops of his vehicle in Essex and Middlesex Counties between August 2015 and April 2017. The charge against Owensby is punishable by a maximum potential penalty of six months in prison and a $5,000 fine. Owensby’s sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 28.
