According to Oklahoma Highway Patrol, a trooper overheard Beckham County dispatch broadcasting a vehicle matching the description of the suspect’s getting fuel at the 26 mile marker on I-40 near Beckham County. Two troopers headed west and also notified Texas authorities.
OHP says a short time later, a truck driver contacted Beckham County authorities that the vehicle was driving westbound at mile marker 7. A Department of Public Safety Port of Entry officer was waiting at exit 7 and watched the vehicle drive by. The officer pulled up behind the vehicle and flashed his emergency lights. The vehicle kept driving but eventually stopped after taking a nearby exit. Two minutes later, state troopers and Beckham County deputies arrived and helped take 40-year-old Donny Jackson into custody.
OHP confirms Jackson is the suspect in a double murder case in Kansas.
