Accused getaway car driver in Pahrump robbery arrested

A man police say helped rob a Pahrump couple and their disabled daughter almost a week ago was arrested Friday, according to Nye County officials.

William Jones, 40, was sought out by the Nye County sheriff’s office for his role in Saturday’s robbery with Carl Fort, 22, and Shaun Neubert, 20, according to a news release. Jones was caught by Las Vegas police and is being held in the Clark County Detention Center.

Fort and Neubert were booked at the Nye County Detention Center on multiple charges.

Neubert told investigators that Jones drove the getaway car, according to the sheriff’s office.

The sheriff’s office released clearer photos and descriptions of Jones on Friday morning, asking the public for help tracking him down. Jones is described as about 5 feet 10 inches and 200 pounds. He has brown hair and hazel eyes. Deputies said he has two tattoos: a grim reaper on his left arm and a design of a knife and a cross with miscellaneous lettering.

An 80-year-old man, his 75-year-old wife and their 49-year-old daughter were held at knife point while Fort and Neubert went in their home and stole cash, valuables and collectibles about 1:30 a.m. on Saturday.

The family was tied up before the robbers fled, deputies said.
