The Natchez Police Department reported Jackson was connected to three incidents between Sept. 5 and Oct. 1 that led to his arrest.

Officers responded Sept. 5 to a residence on Linton Avenue in response to a man peering through windows at the residence and attempting to open the door.

On Sept. 13, officers responded to a residence on State Street after a report a man was lurking around a residence and peering through a window before allegedly breaking into a storage unit and stealing two bicycles.

Finally, police reported a third incident from Oct. 1 when a man allegedly entered a Clifton Avenue residence and stole a jar containing an undisclosed amount of cash.

With a warrants out for Jackson’s arrest, officers saw Jackson in the area of 413 S. Canal St., Natchez Police Capt. Scott Frye said. Officers reportedly chased Jackson after he attempted to escape.

Frye said Jackson also fled from police approximately two weeks ago, though Jackson was reportedly successful in that instance. Frye said Jackson escaped officers on foot, leading to the second count of resisting arrest.

The cases remain under investigation and additional charges are possible, Frye said.
