A Gainesville man was arrested Thursday on a robbery charge related to a May 31 home invasion of a southwest Gainesville apartment, according to an arrest report.

Charged with home invasion robbery with a firearm was Shawn Jones, 21, of 104 SE 44th St., the Gainesville Police Department reported.

The incident occurred about 12:15 a.m. at the Cabana Beach apartment complex at 1601 SW 51st Terrace. Two victims reported that three people came into the apartment and robbed them of marijuana, a wallet and a cellphone.

One of the victims recognized one of the culprits as Jahmere Webb, 20, of Gainesville. He was arrested earlier on a robbery charge in the case.

Police developed Jones as a suspect after one of the victims, who got a new cellphone, began getting text messages from someone trying to contact “Shawn”.

He was arrested Thursday morning and remained jailed Friday in lieu of $300,000 bond.
