The felony charge is for violating a section of Florida law that says "[i]t is unlawful for any person to maintain, or possess any conveyance or vehicle that is equipped with, fuel tanks, bladders, drums, or other containers that do not conform to 49 C.F.R.," a federal law with precise fuel-transporting guidelines.
Photos provided to U.S. News by the Polk County Sheriff's Office show Jones was traveling with two commercially available plastic kerosene containers, a blow torch and a large number of Qurans. The truck is owned by Jones' associate.
Jones' cellphone remains in police custody. "His gun was also not returned," Fran Ingram of Jones' advocacy group Stand Up America Now told U.S. News. "He has already bought a new one." Polk County police spokeswoman Donna Wood said she's unsure when Jones will have the items returned.
