Marietta police were able to obtain surveillance footage and physical evidence from the scene that led them to identify Jackson as the alleged suspect and obtain a warrant for his arrest. A be-on-the-lookout alert for Jackson was issued to surrounding law enforcement agencies.
Marietta police said Jackson was stopped Sept. 4 for allegedly jay walking across Delk Road near I-75. Police say he tried to conceal his identity by providing an inaccurate date of birth. He was taken into custody once his identify was confirmed.
Marietta police spokesman Chuck McPhilamy said detectives are working with neighboring police agencies and checking with area pawn shops to recover items taken from the vehicles.
Along with the charges from Marietta police, Jackson was wanted by Atlanta police on charges of theft by receiving and obstruction. He was booked into the Cobb County Adult Detention Center Sept. 4 where he remains.
