Details of the case:

According to a criminal complaint, around 1:00 a.m. on February 6, Punxsutawney-based State Police initiated a traffic stop on a white 2020 Toyota RAV4 on State Route 410 just north of Pike Road in Henderson Township, Jefferson County, after the vehicle was observed swerving across the center line and driving on the left side of the roadway, as well as using its turn signals without turning, and having an expired registration.

The complaint states the driver was then identified as Kimari Jackson and the passenger was identified as Kareem Jabbar Rock.

Police then ran a query on each of the individuals and found that Rock had two active warrants from Ohio, which included a warrant for robbery, resisting, trafficking, and possession, and another for trafficking, drug possession, possession of criminal tools, failure to comply, resisting arrest, and fleeing police, according to the complaint, Rock was then detained and placed in a police patrol vehicle.

The troopers then began to question Jackson about anything illegal in the vehicle. The complaint states Jackson immediately admitted she had marijuana, and turned over a small plastic baggie with a green, leafy substance suspected to be marijuana. Police then asked for consent to search the vehicle, and Jackson refused. She was then placed under arrest for possession of marijuana.

The vehicle was subsequently impounded due to signs of possible trafficking, the complaint notes.

A warrant was then requested and granted for a search of the vehicle. The search discovered organic hemp rolling papers and a marijuana grinder in decenter console. Police also found a large, vacuum-sealed bag, concealed within a McDonalds’ bag under the driver’s seat, that contained a clear crystal-like substance suspected to be methamphetamine, which weighed approximately 590 grams and later tested positive as methamphetamine, according to the complaint.

Jackson was arraigned in front of Magisterial District Judge David B. Inzana at 6:35 p.m. on February 6.

Rock was arraigned in front of Magisterial District Judge David B. Inzana at 7:15 p.m. on February 6.
