B.D.F. Commander Jones Was Not Home at Time of Burglary

David Jones

The Price Barracks residence of Brigadier General David Jones was broken into a few weeks ago, while the B.D.F. commander was out of the country.  The discovery that his home had been burglarized and ransacked was made upon his return on the weekend of December second.  Stolen from the property was approximately thirty thousand dollars in cash, along with other items.  While Jones has been silent about the incident, we caught up with him earlier today and he gave the media a brief response to several questions posed to him about the break-in.
