Reporting Deputy: Sergeant Jarrod Meissen

File # L233110120, L233020047


On Tuesday, November 7, 2023, about 5:52 p.m., deputies assigned to the Lake Elsinore Sheriff’s Station responded to the 16600 block of Lakeshore Drive for a report of a robbery. Numerous witnesses reported a suspect assaulted and attempted to steal a wallet from a citizen who was conducting business at an automated teller machine (ATM). The Lake Elsinore Station’s Robbery Burglary Suppression Team (RBST) and Special Enforcement Team (SET) responded to assist in the investigation. Using the information provided, deputies were able to identify the suspect as Henry Jackson, a 56-year-old resident of Lake Elsinore. RBST and SET deputies contacted Jackson at his residence where they observed the vehicle Jackson used to flee the scene. Jackson was taken into custody and a search warrant was authored for his vehicles and residence. Clothing items worn by Jackson during the incident were seized as evidence.

The circumstances and suspect description provided by witnesses of this incident resembled a recent robbery at the same ATM about one week prior. Through further investigation into both incidents, deputies determined Jackson was the primary suspect in both robberies.

Henry Jackson was transported and booked into the Cois Byrd Detention Center on two counts of robbery.
