Armed man robs Walmart

Airsoft gun found on man who threatened security guard

Police arrested a Ukiah man last Monday after he allegedly fled from the Mountain View Walmart with $99 worth of merchandise and threatened Walmart security with what appeared to be a gun.

At 2:32 p.m., the man entered the Walmart at the 600 block of Showers Drive and selected numerous items with a value of approximately $99, according to Sgt. Saul Jaeger of the Mountain View Police Department.

When he exited the store he was confronted by a non-uniformed Walmart security employee. The man allegedly responded by pointing a gun at the agent, and then fled the scene.

He was later located by Mountain View police near the intersection of Rengstorff Avenue and California Street, where he was positively identified. John Jackson, 40, was arrested on charges of burglary and robbery. Jackson had a backpack which contained a realistic-looking Airsoft gun

Jackson was booked into San Jose Main Jail with a bail set at $100,378. Police do not know why Jackson was in Mountain View, 150 miles south of Ukiah.
