"Caveat Emptor".

That's Latin for "Let the buyer beware". It may have been good advice for one guy. 

He thought he was buying a car, but Mobile Police say it was a set up for robbery. Now, investigators are turning to FOX10 News Fugitive Files for help in finding the guy they say is the thief.

MPD: Car Sale Turns Into Robbery

Jaylen Jones

This is 21 year old Jaylen Jones. According to investigators, he was offering a car for sale, and connected with a guy on social media. They agreed on a price, and a place to meet.

The victim showed up with the cash-a thousand bucks, but during the course of their conversation,investigators say Jones grabbed the cash and took off-in the car he was going to sell the guy. He hasn't been seen since.

Take a good look at Jaylen Jones. This is a recent mug shot, and yes, he has a criminal record, including First Degree Robbery. Jones is 5 feet, 8 inches tall, weighing 158 pounds.

If you have seen Jones, or know where he is, contact the FOX10 News Fugitive Files-Crime Stoppers Hotline at 251-208-7211. Remember: you don't have to leave your name when you call.
