PALM COAST, FL – On January 5, 2021, the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) Special Investigations Unit (SIU) served a Narcotics Search Warrant at 12 Big Bear Lane in Palm Coast. During the search warrant, 34-year-old Michael Tyrone Jackson was arrested and charged with possession of alprazolam, possession of THC and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Jackson was released after posting bond. On Thursday, January 7, 2021, the FCSO SIU observed Jackson driving a vehicle at a high rate of speed. The FCSO Problem Area Crime Enforcement (P.A.C.E.) Unit and K-9 Unit responded to the area and were able to conduct a traffic stop on Jackson for multiple traffic violations. Jackson was again arrested for possession of cannabis.
The vehicle Jackson was operating was found to have discrepancies in the registration and Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). Further investigation revealed that the vehicle had numerous alterations to disguise the actual registration and VIN. The vehicle was subsequently found to be stolen approximately two years ago from a Honda dealership in St. Johns County. Jackson was additionally charged with Grand Theft-Auto and his bond was revoked from his arrest on January 5 from the search warrant.
“The diligent efforts of FCSO SIU Detectives, P.A.C.E Detectives, and K-9 Unit put a stop to Jackson’s attempts to operate as a smooth criminal,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “Maybe his time back in jail will convince him to turn from his criminal ways.”
