A man suspected in two Contra Costa County bank robberies and one in Solano County was apprehended early Thursday morning in Richmond, according to the Pleasant Hill Police Department.

Huey Jones Jr., a 55-year-old resident of Suisun City, allegedly passed a note demanding cash to a teller at the U.S. Bank branch located in the Safeway store at 707 Contra Costa Blvd. in Pleasant Hill last Friday. Investigators said that Jones did not brandish any weapons, and he fled the scene when the teller declined to give him any money. But Jones has since become a suspect in two other bank robberies involving notes in Walnut Creek and Fairfield.

Jones has been booked into the Martinez Detention Facility on suspicion of robbery and attempted robbery.

The investigation remains open and police are asking anyone with additional information to call (925) 288-4630.
