During a hearing before Cole County Judge Dan Green, Trevon Jackson, 21, pleaded guilty to resisting arrest and receiving stolen property.

Officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop for traffic violations on Jackson, who was in a vehicle traveling in the 300 block of West Dunklin Street, according to a Jefferson City Police Department probable cause statement.

He failed to stop, and the pursuit began.

The chase lasted about 10 minutes, reaching speeds in excess of 100 mph, and ended in Osage County on U.S. 50/63, a mile west of County Road 605, where Jackson was taken into custody.

Jackson had told officers there was a gun and narcotics in the vehicle. When they searched the vehicle, officers found a Glock 20 handgun that was found to have been stolen from Kansas City along with 8 grams of marijuana.

Jackson told police he had run from them because he had bought the gun off the street and believed it was stolen.

Court records note Jackson had a felony warrant for robbery out of Kansas City and was on probation for robbery and property damage at the time of his arrest.
