Lloyd Dylan Jones, 37 of Placerville was sentenced July 26 to 10 years in state prison
for stalking and making criminal threats by the Honorable Michael Jones, according to Placer County District Attorney R. Scott Owens via a press release Friday morning.
Jones was convicted on June 27 for numerous counts of stalking and criminal threats. Additionally, Jones violated the conditions of existing restraining orders placed upon him that prohibited him from contacting the three victims or possessing any firearms or ammunition, according to Owens.
Evidence presented at trial showed that Jones had been stalking and threatening three employees of the Rocklin Liberty Mutual Insurance Company located at 6030 West Oaks Blvd., Suite 100.
Jones was also convicted of multiple weapon violations involving weapons that were found at his home, according to the press release.
During the execution of a search warrant of the defendant’s property, law enforcement officers located several firearms including two illegal AR’s (assault rifles), 23 high-capacity magazines, two ballistic vests and an estimated 6,000 rounds of ammunition.
The case was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Tyson Page, who was pleased that the jury and the judge recognized the dangerousness of Jones. Paige praised the courage of the victims to come forward and testify against Jones in the case.
“It was scary enough that Jones stalked and threatened these victims but to do it while possessing an arsenal of weapons is horrifying,” Page said. “The courage of these victims and quick response of law enforcement undoubtedly prevented a tragedy.”
