Man on pre-trial release arrested on gun and drug charges
September 24, 2023
GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Keenan Javar Jackson, 31, was arrested yesterday on a warrant for firearm theft and battery after marijuana was allegedly found during a traffic stop.
A woman filed a sworn complaint against Jackson on September 17, alleging that Jackson had hit her multiple times during an altercation, which led her to produce her pistol. She said Jackson took her pistol, put it in his pocket, then took out his own gun and hit her in the head. She said Jackson then sent her texts, telling her he still had her gun and refusing to return it to her. A warrant for his arrest was issued on September 21 with recommended bail of $300,000.
An Alachua County Sheriff’s Deputy pulled Jackson over yesterday on SW 13th Street and reportedly saw baggies of marijuana in plain view. Another baggie was reportedly found during a search incident to arrest for the active warrant.
Jackson has been charged with battery, grand theft of a firearm, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana.
Jackson has nine felony convictions (none violent) and nine misdemeanor convictions (none violent). He has served two state prison sentences, with his most recent release in 2021. He is on pre-trial release after posting a $25,000 bond for drug charges following a January 2023 arrest.
Bail information is unavailable on weekends.
