WARNER ROBINS — A Warner Robins man caught on a video surveillance tape without any pants on while rummaging through a carport has been charged in connection with a 2008 armed robbery and aggravated assault, police said.
Kenneth James Jackson, 43, was being held Tuesday at the Houston County jail on charges of armed robbery and aggravated assault in a Nov. 27, 2008, incident at a Winship Drive home in which a resident was robbed and assaulted, said Houston County sheriff’s Capt. Robert Clark.
Jackson was also being held on charges of indecent exposure, criminal trespass and theft by taking for two unrelated incidents in June.
In one of those incidents, Jackson was caught on a home surveillance video without any pants on and wearing only a shirt and tennis shoes, said Houston County Sheriff’s Sgt. Joe Middlebrooks. In the other incident, Jackson is captured on a home surveillance video with his boxer shorts pulled down, Middlebrooks said.
Never miss a local story.
Authorities suspected Jackson was the man captured on the surveillance videos and set up a surveillance of their own in which Jackson was identified when he was seen walking down a street wearing only his boxer shorts and tennis shoes, Middlebrooks said.
A photographic lineup that included Jackson was shown to the victim of the 2008 incident and the victim identified Jackson, Middlebrooks said.
Jackson is also a person of interest in other crimes — ranging from home invasion, to burglary, to indecent exposure — that have troubled the Knodishall Drive area just north of Watson Boulevard for the past three years, according to Clark and Middlebrooks.
Anyone with information related to Jackson is asked to contact Middlebrooks at (478) 542-2085, or (478) 542-2080.
