SEATTLE (CBS Seattle / AP) — A man suspected of shoplifting beef jerky at a downtown Seattle market was arrested on an arrest warrant accusing him of murder in a fatal crash.

Police claim Curtis Earl Jones originally gave a false name and claimed he didn’t have any identification on him when he was questioned early Monday morning, but he was wearing a dog tag around his neck with his name.

A records check turned up the arrest warrant in connection with the crash in September of last year. Jones, 47, who didn’t pay for a snack, was subsequently booked into King County Jail.

The deadly crash Jones was allegedly involved with occurred in Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood. Police say the victim who died in the crash was a passenger in Jones’ truck. KIRO 7 identified that victim as Sheila Helvie.

Jones faces a second-degree murder charge as well as vehicular assault, reckless endangerment, and driving with a suspended or revoked license.
