Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : Volusia County deputies in Florida have made a significant breakthrough in their search for the person responsible for a series of break-ins at local nail salons. Their investigation has not only led to the arrest of the suspect but has also resulted in the capture of a fugitive wanted for murder.

The incident first came to light when deputies responded to reports of a burglary at Spa Nail Salon on Elkcam Blvd. The shattered glass door was discovered by an employee of a neighboring business who immediately alerted the authorities. Surveillance footage from the salon revealed that the break-in occurred at around 1 a.m., with a masked man making his way to the cash register. After failing to open it, the suspect left the scene with the entire register.

The investigation took an unexpected turn when a camera outside the salon captured images of the suspect’s vehicle, a white Infiniti sedan. It matched the description of a vehicle used in another burglary just an hour later at Premiere Nails in Edgewater. License plate readers near each salon helped identify the suspect vehicle as belonging to 21-year-old Xavier Jones of Orlando.

Assistance was requested from Orange County deputies, who located the suspect vehicle parked at Jones’ address. During a search of the car, deputies discovered a mask, a glove, loose coins, pieces of a cash register, broken glass, and boots with glass shards stuck in the soles. These findings provided further evidence linking Jones to the nail salon burglaries.

Initially denying any involvement, Jones was eventually incriminated when DNA collected from the mask found in his vehicle matched a sample he had submitted. He was subsequently taken into custody on charges of burglary, criminal mischief, and violation of probation.

While at Jones’ residence, detectives also encountered 19-year-old Taverance Jackson Jr. from Opa-Locka. It was revealed that Jackson had an active murder warrant from Georgia, where he was allegedly involved in a shooting that resulted in two deaths and one injury. Two guns believed to have been used in the shooting were discovered in the room where Jackson was staying.

Both Jones and Jackson are currently being held in the Orange County jail without bond. The successful collaboration between Volusia and Orange County deputies has not only solved the nail salon burglaries but has also led to the apprehension of a dangerous fugitive.
