Police arrested a man in Pittsburgh who authorities said stowed away aboard Amtrak’s Capitol Limited using travel vouchers acquired with a stolen credit card.
Police are unsure of Jones’ hometown, but said the last place they were able to determine that he lived was in a community shelter in Cleveland.
Although police have yet to disclose details about why Jones was detained, authorities said they had been watching him as part of a continuing criminal investigation.
Jones is alleged to have used nearly $7,000 in vouchers that he acquired with a stolen credit card.
Police said Jones traveled alone Chicago and Washington without luggage in a sleeping car room.
Jones was charged with receiving stolen property and being a stowaway. Police said additional charges are pending.
