Kaylor Jackson

An intoxicated man attempting to burglarize a home on Epperson Springs Rd., was arrested after his truck got stuck in the mud and he tried to force a woman who lived nearby to give him a ride into town.


According to the report filed by Macon County Sheriff’s Deputy Jason Sells, he was dispatched to Epperson Springs Rd. after a 911 caller reported a man forced his way into her residence with a gun and requested a ride into town.
The caller stated he had left her residence, walked down Epperson Springs Rd. and was seen packing items from a nearby residence into his vehicle.
The woman also stated that he told her he had dope, and offered to share it with her.
As officer Sells approached the location, he noticed a vehicle stuck in the mud at a nearby residence and some individuals trying to pull it out.
He identified the owner of the vehicle as 25-year-old Kaylor Jackson.
Mr. Jackson’s vehicle had tools, a TV, gloves, a battery charger and other miscellaneous items visible in the back.
Assisted by Sergeant Joseph Woodard, a search of the residence uncovered a broken window and a cut window screen.
The items taken from the residence matched the items inside Jackson’s car, and when the homeowner was notified, he was able to identify his property.
The homeowner stated that he did not know Jackson.
A further search of Jackson’s vehicle produced hypodermic needles, prescription pills and meth.
While Jackson reportedly denied showing a gun when he entered the 911 caller’s home, authorities found an air soft gun in his vehicle, matching the caller’s description.
He was charged with aggravated burglary, criminal trespassing, manufacture/delivery/possession of meth, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a legend drug, criminal trespassing, trespass by motor vehicle, vandalism, filing a false report, theft of property, display of an imitation firearm and public intoxication.
His bond was set at $39,500 and he is scheduled to appear in General Sessions Court on April 25.
