Prescott AZ (January 12, 2021) – It’s day 12 of Yavapai Silent Witness’ Catch 22 Program. Today the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in finding fugitive Charles Edward Jackson. On February 19, 2015, the vehicle Jackson was driving, was pulled over by a Yavapai County Sheriff’s Deputy on I40 at milepost 138 for failing to maintain a single lane and weaving repeatedly. Upon contacting Jackson, the Deputy learned Jackson had a suspended Nevada driver’s license. Jackson told the deputy he and his two female passengers were on their way to a cancer treatment center in Arizona because he has been fighting cancer for a while. When asked where the center was, neither Jackson nor his passengers could tell the deputy where the center was located. Due to the many conflicting statements and stories with no details, and obvious nervousness above what would be expected during a normal traffic stop, the Deputy believed the occupants of the vehicle may have been involved in criminal activity.
The deputy asked permission to search the vehicle and Jackson granted it. In the center console, the deputy found tin foil with burnt heroin residue on it. The deputy then noticed the radio display in the dashboard lifted up to give access to the factory void under the dashboard. In that void, the deputy found 7 bindles of heroin. Jackson and his front seat passenger Jendayi McMillian were arrested and charged with Possession of Narcotic Drugs for Sale, Possession of Narcotic Drugs, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
Jackson was convicted but has violated his probation. He now has a Nationwide no bond Probation Violation Warrant. Jackson is described as a 44-year-old African American Male 6 feet 1 inch tall, 250 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. He has multiple tattoos to include one of his name, “Charles,” on his right hand. His last known address was in the 6500 block of Charleston BLVD in Las Vegas Nevada.
