Pair accused of selling crack near Sterling school
Two Chicago men were jailed after a drug bust in Sterling, Illinois.
Police say Marshaun Jackson, 23, and Shaquille Jackson, 18, sold a gram of crack cocaine to an undercover officer.
Both men were arrested and charged Friday, July 27, 2012. They each face one count of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school. Police said the sale happened less than 1,000 feet from St. Mary’s School in Sterling.
Shaquille Jackson was held in the Whiteside County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bond. Online records show he was on parole from the Illinois Department of Corrections after he was convicted of a weapons charge in 2011. His projected discharge date was December 2012.
Marshaun Jackson was held in the Whiteside County Jail in lieu of $200,000 bond.
Both men were scheduled to make their next court appearance August 2.
