Jones ran a booking agency for musicians. Among his clientele were Cornell Tyree, Tyrone Lamont, Bowe and Bittleston. Jones was also part of Mickey Cohen's stolen morphine racket, working as a supplier along with Merlon Ottie. Both collected supplies of morphine from Lenny Finkelstein through deliveries from Ramez Removals. One of Jones' distributors was Fleetwood Morgan, who would sell the morphine by strapping them to the bottom of popcorn cups at the Black Caesar food hut.

After the death of Lamont and Tyree from overdose, Morgan gave up Jones as his supplier in the morphine distribution. He is confronted by Detectives Cole Phelps and Roy Earle. They searched his office and discovered supplies of morphine as well as reefer hidden in his radio, which Phelps found a note for, which what frequency the radio would have to be set to, in order to trigger the hidden switch. After sending two thugs to beat up the two detectives, which they failed, Jones was questioned. Despite his less forthcoming attitude, Jones eventually revealed he worked for Lenny Finkelstein and gave up Merlon Ottie, revealing his illegal gambling establishment. Jones and his henchman were sent to prison for drug trafficking, however, Phelps promised to personally speak to the D.A. to help reduce his sentence in exchange for his cooperation.
