SIOUX CITY — The Sioux City Police Department responded to a robbery call shortly after 11 p.m. Saturday at Cubby’s convenience store, 4200 S. York St.

The suspect — later identified as 41-year-old Antonio Jones of St. Louis, Missouri — allegedly entered Cubby’s and demanded money from a clerk while also making threats toward the clerk.

Jones then ordered the clerk to get on the ground, took money from the register and fled the scene.

A short time after, an Iowa State Patrol trooper stopped a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed on Interstate 29 South. The description of the speeding driver matched a description of Jones.

Jones was booked into the Woodbury County Jail on second-degree robbery charges.
