Dentarious Lamar Jackson

A Sylacauga man being detained by a State Trooper was arrested Monday on a drug-related charge.
Dentarious Lamar Jackson, 35 years old, was detained by a Trooper for having warrants in Coosa County. The warrants were for multiple failure to pay on prior driving-related charges, including driving while revoked, operating a vehicle without insurance and speeding 25 MPH over the limit.
Deputy Ward arrived to pick up Jackson and transport him to the Coosa County Jail. Upon being transferred from the State Trooper’s car to the deputy’s vehicle, a bag containing a green leafy substance reportedly split open.
Deputy Ward asked Jackson if he had anything else on him, and he said he did not. After arriving at the county jail, Jackson was again asked if he had anything on him.
However, that time he handed over a bag containing a crystal-like substance found to be methamphetamine to law enforcement officers.
Jackson was arrested for his failure to appear/pay warrants and further arrested on the charge of possession of a controlled substance. His bond for the drug-related charge was set at $10,000, and as of press time he remained in custody at the Coosa County Jail awaiting trial.
