Fugitive, owner of 'Fo Sho Dough' apprehended
MURRAY, KY- The corner business that once anchored a brick building is gone. The plate glass windows have been emptied of signs that promised 'trustworthy' and 'dependable' service. It was Silvia Jones who taped the signs there, the woman police have spent months looking for.
"She's finally coming back to Murray to face charges," Sgt. Scott Svebakken, with Murray Police, said Thursday.
Jones, the owner of 'Fo Sho Dough Tax Returns' had been brought back to Murray that afternoon to answer to charges of identify theft, forgery, and fraud.
She was picked up Wednesday in Memphis, Tennessee.
Jones had been in business in Murray just a few weeks when she packed up and left town in February.
A big part of her 'business' Svebakken said was falsifying tax returns.
"She was stealing people's identities and listing them as dependents," he said.
Thanks to a series of other tricks, Svebakken says she was able to pocket about $14,000 in a matter of weeks. It was not the victims who initially caught on, but a bank.
But, by then, she was gone. Police were determined to find her.
Six months later, Svebakken says the only thing that is 'Fo Sho' now is justice will be served, "You can run but eventually we're going to find you. You can't hide forever."
Murray Police do not believe Jones scammed any local victims, but they are continuing to investigate. For now it appears, the majority of Jones' victims were out of Memphis.
