A 20-year-old Rapid City man is behind bars after a weekend traffic stop in Chadron ended with the discovery of cocaine and a stolen firearm.

According to a release from Police Chief Rick Hickstein, a Chadron Police Officer made a traffic stop just after midnight Sunday on a white four-door sedan for failing to stop at a stop sign, and detected the odor of marijuana coming from inside the car.

A search of the sedan uncovered a loaded .40 caliber handgun under the driver’s seat, determined to have been stolen out of South Dakota.

Officers located a bag with approximately 43 grams of suspected cocaine, a small amount of marijuana, a digital scale and packaging materials in the trunk of the car after it had been towed to the Police Department for further processing.

Jaylon L. Jackson was arrested on charges that include felony Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver and Possession of a Stolen Firearm, and was taken to the Dawes County Jail with bond set at 10% of $100,000.00.
