A Kings County sheriff’s deputy traveling in the area of 13th Avenue and Jackson Avenue in rural Kings County on Tuesday, January 25 at about 8:45 p.m. spotted a Lincoln Navigator driving at a high rate of speed.

As the deputy caught up to the vehicle, the Navigator suddenly turned onto a dirt road near a residence. The driver of the Navigator, later identified as Jennifer Williamson, abruptly turned toward the residence and drove over a brick path and onto the front lawn.

The suspect, Williamson, exited the Navigator and told a deputy that she was at the residence to visit a friend. The residents living at the residence heard the commotion and came outside to see what was happening on their front lawn.

Williamson asked them if her friend lived there, but no one at the residence knew her friend.

The deputy asked the suspect questions and Williamson admitted to pulling into the residence due to her vehicle’s expired registration. Williamson stated she was on active CDC Parole and had a meth pipe along with a .45 caliber bullet in her possession. The deputy determined that the suspect may have been under the influence of a controlled substance.

The deputy arrested Williamson, searched the Navigator, and found a Glock 21 .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol. The firearm was loaded with an extended magazine that contained 25 .45 caliber rounds. The deputy did a record check on the Glock however and did not find any record.

The deputy booked Williamson into the Kings County Jail on the charges including suspicion of having been under the influence while in possession of a firearm, possession of a large-capacity magazine, and being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition. Her bail was set at $65,000.
