Albuquerque –

On January 12th, 2024, Aaron Jones, the owner of International Protective Service Inc., was meeting with his daughter and a business associate at a Popeyes restaurant located on 4240 San Mateo Blvd. NE. An incident occurred in the parking lot involving Jones’ daughter, and a firearm was allegedly brandished by Jones towards a male in the parking lot.

Albuquerque Police arrived on scene and detained Jones and started their investigation. It was revealed that Jones’ daughter and business associate tampered with evidence. Detectives discovered this by reviewing security camera footage from inside of the restaurant.


Jones was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and tampering with evidence. He faced Judge Asra Elliott in court for his felony charges. He was among other alleged felons. Jones was called to the podium and his lawyer did all the talking and put in a plea of not guilty.

Judge Elliott moved the case to District Court and ordered Jones to be held in custody until his pre-trial motion hearing is held. His hearing will be later next week because Monday is a federal holiday and the courts are closed. While Judge Elliott delivered the news, Jones stood quietly and nodded in understanding the order.
