Jackson area man charged after tense situation at home
A tense and potentially dangerous situation at a Franklin Township home last Thursday night, February 7, ended with nobody getting hurt and one man being arrested.

The Jackson County Sheriff's Office was notified at 10:11 p.m. Thursday of a "possible hostage situation" at a residence at 262 Walker Road, Jackson.

Deputies were told 26-year-old Joshua Roach of 262 Walker Road, Jackson, had sent text messages threatening to kill his parents and his girlfriend, whom he was reportedly holding at the residence.

Deputies, who were assisted by an Oak Hill Police officer, gathered at a church near the residence to plan a course of action. One of the deputies was able to contact Roach by cell phone and talk with him. They were able to calm Roach down and officers moved to the residence's driveway. Roach subsequently walked out the back door and was arrested without any problems.

Deputies charged Roach with a misdemeanor-level charge of Inducing Panic and he was incarcerated in the Jackson County Correctional Facility.
