The charges stem from an incident the previous day when a deputy took a report of a male individual on the west side of the Osceola square who attempted to hide a hypodermic syringe in a flower pot before entering the St. Clair County Courthouse. The deputy arrived at the flower pot in front of Stewart and Kiefer Realty and verified the item was a used syringe. It was seized it as evidence.
During the investigation, deputies observed Jackson return from the courthouse and search the same flower pot the syringe was in. Residue from the syringe field tested positive for methamphetamine.
