The complainant said the suspect took the bag of drugs and warned him (Jackson) not to stop him because he would shoot him.

Jackson stated he did try to not stop the 20-25 year-old black male suspect because he was in fear the man really did have a gun.

The suspect is further described as about 5’8”, wearing a blue hoodie, dark jeans, and a scruffy beard.

Officer Darren Koski interviewed the complainant and filed a police report.

“He asked me what would happen in court if the thief is caught. I explained that I really doubt they will give him back 200 dollars’ worth of marijuana,” stated Koski.

Several officers searched the area without locating anyone matching the suspect’s description.

Koski added, “Mr. Jackson said that everybody told him not to report it, but he really wanted the police to know that he was robbed. Now we know.”

Mr. Jackson has not been charged with a criminal offense.
