In Jones' case, three officers' conflicting testimony on the stand during a pre-trial hearing was made even more dubious when their case agent, Det. Edgar Allen, was questioned during the trial about official notes he wrote describing Jones' arrest. The arrest, on Jan. 19, 2013, occurred after police approached Jones while he was leaning in through the open drivers' side front door of his van, handling some clothes over the console area, and when the officers spoke to him, he tossed the clothing to the passenger-side seat, and a gun tumbled out. Three officers testified at trial, including James Kostoplis, and all three said Kostoplis saw the gun first, and seized it. But Allen's notes contradicted that account, saying the gun was first seen and seized by a fourth, non-testifying officer, Steven Langjahr.
