Jackson Police have arrested 17 year old juvenile in connection with the burglary
of a residence on Shadow Lawn Dr. The suspect is charged with Aggravated
Burglary, Vandalism and Unlawful possession of a weapon. The juvenile
appeared before Madison County Juvenile Court Judge Christy Little today for a
detention hearing and will be tried at a later date.
On 11-29-2012 Officers were dispatched to Shadow Lawn Drive after a witness
reported seeing a suspect kick in the door to a residence. The witness was able
to provide a description of the suspect and keep the dispatcher updated on the
suspect’s activity. Officers found the back door to the residence had been kicked
open. Officers gave verbal commands to the suspect who gave up before a
police dog was released.
After the homeowner arrived home to check the residence, he discovered that
the suspect had hidden a handgun in the home before giving up to the police.
A citizen reporting suspicious activity is the reason this case was solved.
Citizens are always encouraged to report suspicious activity. If you see
something, say something.
While the investigation is ongoing, we encourage anyone with information to
contact the Property Crimes Unit at the Jackson Police Department at 425-8400
or Crime Stoppers at 424-TIPS (8477) or online at
