Worcester Police Officers Arrest Worcester Man for Multiple Firearms, Crack Cocaine

For Immediate Release: 2/25/2019 6:11 pm

On February 25th, Worcester Police responded to an address on Chilmark Street for a report of a loud fight. Once the officers arrived, they heard a struggle, and a male, later identified as Scott Jackson, thirty-one-years-old, prevented the officers from entering the apartment. As he tried to push them back, Mr. Jackson reached for what officers observed to be a pocket knife in his pocket. Officers grabbed him to keep him from reaching the knife. During the struggle, Mr. Jackson tried to pull away from the officers and reached for his waistband on the other side. Officers observed a small black firearm in his waistband, and tried to prevent him from reaching it. The officers were able to hold his arms away from his body and place him in handcuffs. Mr. Jackson does not have a license to carry firearms.

After recovering the black handgun and determining that Mr. Jackson did not have a license to carry firearms, officers applied for a search warrant for the apartment. After executing the warrant, officers recovered a large amount of what appeared to be crack cocaine, Oxycodone pills, a rifle with a scope, multiple ammunition magazines, a 9mm handgun, a .38 special revolver, several small plastic bags, and a digital scale, in addition to the firearm in Mr. Jackson’s waistband. None of the firearms were in locked containers or secured in any way.

Mr. Jackson is charged with Unlawfully Carrying a Firearm without FID, Possession of Ammunition without FID, Use of a Firearm in a Felony, Possession of Firearm (Three Counts), Possession of Large Capacity Weapon, Possession of Large Capacity Feeding Device (Three Counts), Possession of Large Capacity Firearm during the Commission of a Felony, Improper Storage of a Firearm (2 Counts), Improper Storage of a Large Capacity Firearm, Firearm Containing Obliterated Serial Number (Two Counts), Trafficking of Class B Substance 18-34 (Crack Cocaine), Possession of Class B Substance (Oxycodone), Assault with a Dangerous Weapon (2 Counts), Resisting Arrest and Assault and Battery. He will be arraigned in Worcester District Court.
