HARRIS COUNTY, Texas – A man wanted for two counts of indecency with a child was arrested after trying to use a fake identity.
Robert B. Jones, 66, was taken into custody by deputies assigned to the Homeless Outreach Team on Monday.
Jones inquired to deputies about being placed in a local center for the homeless. He identified himself as Samuel Johnson and gave them an identity card.
Jones' true identity was revealed through a thumb print after deputies discovered the name and date of birth on the card were not valid.
Jones is now waiting to appear in court for the charges.
