[ARCHIVED] Warrants Team Apprehends Wanted Gang Member


On October 5, 2017, members of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Warrants Team, Lake County Sheriff’s Gang Task Force, and U.S. Marshals Service - Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force (USMS-GLRFTF) apprehended Joshua A. Jackson, 20, of the 500 block of Golfview Drive, Round Lake Park.  Jackson, a documented street gang member, was wanted on a felony warrant for Aggravated Battery (Class 3 Felony - $100,000.00 bond).  The warrant was issued on September 20, 2017, and stems from a Round Lake Police Department investigation.  

Members of the Lake County Sheriff’s Warrants Team located Jackson at his residence in the early morning hours of October 5th.  He was taken into custody at his residence, without incident.  The Warrants Team found Jackson to be in possession of body armor and continue to investigate how Jackson acquired the armor.

Jackson remains held at the Lake County Jail on $100,000.00 bail.  He is next due in court on October 12, 2017 at 1:30PM in courtroom C-120.

Sheriff Curran reminds the public the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
