Damaging car leads to felony charge

Ruston Police responded to a complaint last week that led to a felony charge for a Grambling female. 

A little after noon on March 10, an RPD officer interviewed a woman in relation to a complaint that had occurred at Cash-2-U.  

The officer was advised that Jasmine Jackson, 22, had just damaged a vehicle in the Y2Kutz parking lot by keying three sides of the vehicle. There was a video of Jackson damaging the car. 

When the officer arrived, Jackson stated that she damaged the vehicle because the vehicle’s owner had offended her. The officer saw the video of Jackson damaging the car. Jackson was transported to Lincoln Parish Detention Center and booked for simple criminal damage to property. Bond was set at $10,000.
