Deputies: Man who stole BMW released from jail, arrested nearly 2 hours later for stealing truck

CAMDEN COUNTY, Ga. — Deputies in Georgia believe Dequon Jones is "either very unlucky, a dumb criminal, likes Camden County jail food or all of the above."

According to the Camden County Sheriff's Office, Jones stole a truck less than two hours after being released from the Camden County jail Tuesday afternoon.

He was in jail on suspicion of stealing a BMW from a home in Camden County in 2017.

After being released, Jones walked about two blocks away from the Camden County Sheriff's Office, deputies said, and stole a truck from workers who were working on a house at the time.

The workers reported the truck stolen. The sheriff's brother saw the truck a few hundred yards away from the theft area and saw Jones attempting to get back into it to drive away.

Jones was arrested and faces a charge of theft of a motor vehicle. He is back in the Camden County Jail.
