Jacksonville, FL (January 24, 2019) – Yesterday, police were called to an Amazon fulfillment center in Jacksonville to investigate a threat that was made by an employee who worked there.
The man was identified as Ronald Jones, who was arrested for aggravated stalking. Officers arrived at the scene around 7 a.m. on Pecan Park Road near the Jacksonville International Airport. Police locked down the Amazon fulfillment center to ensure that there was no threat to the building.
The suspect allegedly made a threat against an unnamed employee at Amazon. The man told the female employee that he was on his way to the facility with a gun so that he could kill her. The man texted her and said that he would be in a black truck with tinted windows and said that “she would pay for this” and that he knew where she “lived and worked.” Apparently, he had also made threats against her in the past, including a few against her family.
Police were able to ping Jones’ phone and talked to the man via the woman’s phone. He said that if the woman did not come outside, he would kill himself in the parking lot.
The investigation into the incident remains active at this time.
