FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) — Fayetteville police said they have found and arrested a man Saturday night after he removed his GPS monitor while he was out on bond.
They were looking for 61-year-old Eric Eugene Jackson earlier Saturday after detecting the incident around 5:40 p.m. in the 3100 block of Braddock Drive, according to a news release from the Fayetteville Police Department.
When police arrived, they discovered Jackson had removed his electronic monitoring device, the news release said.
Jackson was being monitored after he was charged with breaking and entering.
He had previously posted bond for felony breaking and entering charges and court-ordered him to remain on a GPS monitoring device, police said.
Police released a photo of Jackson, who they described as 5-feet-8 tall and weighing about 150 pounds.
Officials asked anyone with information about Jackson’s location to contact 911 immediately or Officer W. Bell at (910) 257-7231 or Crime Stoppers at (910) 483-TIPS (8477).
Jackson is now charged with interfering with an electric monitoring device and damage to property.
