Lincoln Residents Charged with Harboring a Fugitive

On April 4, 2014, a complaint was unsealed charging Aaron James Jackson, 28 of Lincoln, harboring a fugitive.  The complaint alleges that between March 20, 2014, and April 4, 2014, Aaron James Jackson was aware that a federal warrant had been issued for his brother, Jason Robert Jackson, for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.  During that time, Aaron Jackson helped his brother evade the Metropolitan Fugitive Task Force’s efforts to locate him.  Aaron Jackson had his first court appearance on April 4, 2014, and he was detained.  Aaron Jackson faces up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

Jason Robert Jackson remains at large and is considered armed and dangerous.  Persons with information about Jackson’s whereabouts should contact their local law enforcement agency.

This case was investigated by the Metro Fugitive Task Force, including officers and agents of the United States Marshals Service, the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Department, and the Lincoln Police Department.
