Posted on: 03/22/2014
Early this month Jonathan Rhone was apprehended by police as a person of interest in the shooting of a Dublin resident. He was soon released because they had a lack of evidence, but was later arrested in Newark after police were able to build a stronger case against him.
Jacob Velasquez, 24, was found by police on March 5th with at least one gunshot wound and was pronounced dead at the scene. He had been shot inside Rhone’s SUV and admitted to destroying evidence inside the vehicle. Rhone is facing a murder and charges of being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm. Rhone is expected to return to Alameda County Superior Court next month. Anyone facing criminal charges in the area should contact Dublin Bail bonds for information on receiving bail.
