The Port Allen Police Department, with the assistance of the United States Marshals, arrested Port Allen fugitive Darryl J. Jackson, 20, on November 21.
Marshals apprehended Jackson near the 1300 block of Rosedale Road after he attempted to escape through the back of a residence and run.
Following a foot chase, Marshals were able to catch Jackson, where he was placed under arrest and charged with one count each of Civil Criminal Damage to Property, Simple Burglary of an Inhabited Dwelling, Resisting an Officer and a Bench Warrant for Port Allen City Court.
Detective Jeremy Thompson of the Port Allen Police Department said that they are still investigating other burglaries and currently have no certain evidence of Jackson’s involvement.
“We’re still waiting on a couple of different things from the crime lab from a couple different cases,” Thompson said. “It’s a little early to be saying that he was involved in any others at this point.”
Thompson said that the Port Allen Police Department had been looking for Jackson since a September 19 incident. A warrant was issued for his arrest “a day or so after that.”
He said that after being unable to locate Jackson, the PAPD contacted the U.S. Marshals to assist with the apprehension of the fugitive.
Jackson was booked into the West Baton Rouge Parish Prison.
Bond was set at $500,000.
