After stealing his neighbor’s car in October, a Racine man, 21, was recently arrested having evaded police since the day of the crime.

Darrian R. Jackson was identified by witnesses and finger prints after fleeing the stolen vehicle on foot during a traffic stop Oct. 31, 2016 at 11th Street west of S. Memorial Drive, according to a criminal complaint.

The vehicle, a Dodge Durango, was stolen sometime before 4 a.m. the same day. The victim was Jackson’s neighbor.

After stealing the car, Jackson drove his friends around during the day smoking weed. A Racine Police officer identified the car and attempted to stop the vehicle, this is when Jackson ran.

Of the two passengers in the Durango, one ran and the other stayed. The passenger that stayed identified Jackson by his nickname “Duke,” other witnesses also identified Jackson as the  driver of the vehicle, according to a criminal complaint.

Jackson is being charged with driving a vehicle without the owner’s consent and resisting/obstructing an officer. His preliminary hearing is Jan. 26.
