A Hocking County man faces several charges after Vinton County Sheriff's Office deputies found him to be in alleged illegal possession of two handguns as well as Methamphetamine this past Thursday, Jan. 4.
According to Vinton County Sheriff Shawn Justice, the sheriff's office received a report about a vehicle parked in the middle of Shurtz Road with an occupant "nodding out." Deputy Logan Partlow arrived and found the vehicle, a 1989 four-door Chevy registered to Kyle L. Jackson, 31 of Logan, parked in the middle of the road with one person inside.
Deputy Partlow made contact with the driver, the registered owner. After a short conversation, it was found that Jackson had a loaded firearm concealed on him and did not have a Concealed Carry Permit. While checking Jackson for more weapons, a 9-milimeter handgun was found in his jacket pocket and a revolver was found inside the back of his pants. Also found were two containers carrying several bags of a white crystal substance that Jackson stated was Methamphetamine. Jackson was also found to have a civil protection order against him stating that he was not to have any firearms.
Jackson was arrested and taken to the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail and charged with Having Weapons Under Disability, Carrying a Concealed Weapon, and Trafficking in Drugs. A bond hearing was to have been scheduled in Vinton County Court. The case has been sent to the Vinton County Prosecuting Attorney for review.
