LOS ANGELES – Police in Los Angeles say an anti-gang intervention worker has been arrested in connection with a jewelry robbery and beating at a hotel.

The Los Angeles Police Department says 30-year-old Marlo “Bow Wow” Jones was arrested Saturday after he was stopped while driving a vehicle known to have been used in the Jan. 5 robbery at a Universal City hotel.

Several suspects, including two women, beat and robbed a man of his jewelry. Jones was arrested for robbery and held in lieu of more than $1 million bail.

Other suspects are still at large.

Jones was a contract worker for the anti-gang organization Unity One, which does work for a city gang-intervention program.

The LAPD says Unity One terminated Jones’ position upon learning of his arrest.
