US Marshals Need Help Finding Alabama Escapee

The United States Marshals Service, Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force is seeking assistance from the public in developing information which will lead to the arrest of 30-year-old Robert Demetrius Jackson.

Jackson walked away from the Alabama Department of Corrections, Mobile Work Release Center on the morning of January 7, 2007. Jackson was assigned to the Minimum Security Facility, but was not on work release.

Jackson was serving a 20 year sentence after being convicted of Robbery 2nd degree. He has over six years remaining to serve on his sentence.

Jackson has close ties to the Prichard, AL area, and was last known to reside in the 4100 block of Vassar Circle, Mobile, AL. He is a black male, 6'03" tall, 190 pounds, short cropped hair, with tattoos on both arms.

Jackson is known to have possessed firearms in the past and should be considered armed and dangerous.

The general public is cautioned to not take any action to detain Jackson. They should immediately call Task Force Officer, Lieutenant William Seals with the United States Marshals Service at (251)753-2870, or in an emergency call 911.
