Whitewater man tasered,
faces numerous charges
Mesa County sheriff’s deputies allege that Randy Jackson, 42, Whitewater, on Thursday grabbed officers’ hands when they discovered a small, round package in his waistband, and they deployed their Taser “several times” to subdue him.
The package later was found to be a small plastic baggie containing a crystalline substance that tested positive for methamphetamine.
Jackson was stopped by police after leaving a suspected drug house. After refusing a vehicle search, a K9 unit was deployed and alerted on Jackson’s vehicle before the alleged altercation, according to a police report.
Police also said they found Jackson wearing an ankle monitor wrapped in cooking tinfoil. Foil is often used to alter or disguise the tracking signal emitted from the monitor.
Jackson is accused of possession, obstruction of a police officer, resisting arrest, tampering with evidence, and a lane use violation from the initial traffic stop.
