The Riley County Police Department released that Dache Dijon Island Jones, 21, of Aubrey, Texas, was arrested on April 20, 2024, at approximately 6:40 PM.

Jones was charged with the distribution of a controlled substance resulting in fatality, distribution of opiate/opium/ narcotic/stimulant/heroin dosage <10 units, and the utilization of a communication facility in the commission of a felony drug violation. The total bond in this matter was set at $500,000. Jones was confined at the time of this report.
