On June 16, 2011 investigators signed ten felony warrants against two suspects following the investigation of a robbery which occurred on June 14, 2011. The Violent Crimes Unit opened an investigation following the incident in which two suspects took a man into his residence at gunpoint on Cornell Avenue ordering him to give them money. The victim provided money and household goods but the unsatisfied suspects demanded more. The victim attempted to lure the suspects away from his home which was also occupied by his wife at the time by stating he had additional money and goods at a local business that he owned. Upon learning this, suspect Alex Jackson accompanied the victim to the business while the additional suspect, Alan Jackson stayed in the home with the wife until they returned.
Investigators contacted local pawn shops on June 14, 2011 with information on unique items taken during robbery in hopes of generating leads. On June 15, 2011 police were notified by a local shop that an item of interest had been brought into the business and the suspect was being stalled by employees. Investigators responded to the shop and took Alan Jackson into custody. A short time later, Alex Jackson, who had previously dropped Alan off returned to the shop and entered the business where he was taken into custody by undercover officers who were inside the business awaiting his return.
Earlier today investigators with the Violent Crimes Unit met with the District Attorney and say five felony charges were signed against each suspect this afternoon. The charges include robbery, kidnapping and burglary. Police are not disclosing the business involved at this time in order to keep the location of the owners residence confidential but have stated the case is now closed following yesterday’s arrest.
