Search ends with suspect still at large

Police searched the area of Sharp Avenue and Stone Street in east central Spokane today for a man wanted on a state Department of Corrections warrant.

Officers didn’t find Joshua A. Jackson, 31, and ask anyone who knows where he is to call 911. Police were responding to a home after a friend of Jackson’s girlfriend called with concerns about her safety.

“We talked to her but we haven’t found him,” said Officer Glenn Bartlett.

Police say Jackson has made threatening statements to police in the past. “That’s why we amped up the response,” Bartlett said.

Jackson is on probation after pleading guilty to unlawful imprisonment (domestic violence) in February, according to news archives. He also was sentenced to a year in jail.

In December 2007, he was sentenced to six months in jail for cyberstalking (threatening to kill).
