Felony Arrest

On December 21st, 2017 members of the Lewis County Sheriff's Office and NEMO Drug Task Force were investigating the distribution of illegal drugs at the residence of Erik P. Hickerson. located at 29480 Magnolia, Durham, Missouri.  While conducting surveillance at the residence they observed Mr. Hickerson drive near his property and when they approached him he fled the residence in his pickup. 

A second individual, identified as Derrill Jackson, also drove onto the Hickerson property in a separate vehicle.  A NEMO Drug Task Force Officer located drug paraphernalia on Mr. Jackson's person.  Mr. Jackson then also attempted to flee from the area.  He also placed the office at risk of harm as he fled in his pickup.  Jackson attempted to flee into Marion County on Magnolia but was blocked by a Lewis County Deputy.  The deputy had previously terminated his pursuit of Mr. Hickerson due to the dangerous conditions and was returning to assist the task force office.  Jackson was then taken into custody.

Mr. Jackson, age 39, of Palmyra, Missouri remains lodged in the Lewis County Jail in lieu of $25,000.00 cash only bond.  He is currently charged with one count of fleeing to avoid arrest, a class E felony, and one count of assault in the second degree, special victim, a class B felony. 

Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Erik Hickerson is asked to contact the Sheriff's Office.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol and the West Central Illinois Drug Task Force assisted with this investigation.
