#LASD Major Crimes Bureau Arrested Attempt Murder Suspect, James Howard Jackson

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Major Crimes Bureau Investigators, along with the United States Marshal Service - Pacific Southwest Regional Fugitive Task Force, collaborated on an intensive search for wanted, attempt murder suspect, James Howard Jackson.

Suspect Jackson was previously incarcerated after he shot a victim and robbed him of two dogs.  On April 6, 2022, Suspect Jackson was erroneously released from custody due to a clerical error.  The two agencies worked together and spent the next four months extensively searching for Suspect Jackson.
With the assistance of the Special Enforcement Bureau, investigators executed a search warrant on Apricot Drive in the city of Palmdale.  Suspect Jackson was apprehended without incident.

LASD Major Crimes Bureau works closely with the United States Marshal’s Service – Pacific Southwest Regional Fugitive Task Force, in supporting all Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Stations, as well as other Southern California law enforcement agencies.
