Woman charged with running over Music City Mall security guards

A 43-year-old woman was arrested after she reportedly hit two mall security guards and ran over one of their arms with her vehicle.

Shaneka Aiyanna Jackson was charged with two counts of aggravated robbery, a first-degree felony.

The reported robbery happened at 3:45 p.m. Sept. 10 in the Dillard’s parking lot of the Music City Mall located at 4101 E. 42nd Street, an Odessa Police Department probable cause affidavit detailed.

Officers reportedly made contact with two Music City Mall security officers, who were identified as Eduardo Herrera and Isaiah Lujan, and an Ector County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Eric Deanda.

Deanda stated that a woman, later identified as Jackson, concealed merchandise in a bag while inside Dillard’s, passed all points of sale and exited the south doors of Dillard’s without making any attempt to pay for the concealed merchandise, the affidavit stated.

Deanda reportedly contacted Jackson in the parking lot to detain her, but she was able to enter the driver’s seat of a black Lincoln Navigator. Deanda continued to detail prior to committing the theft Jackson filled out a credit application using the name “Shaneka” and he recalled overhearing her provide the address of 4400 Tanglewood Lane.

OPD records show Jackson was issued a citation on a previous date in a black 2006 Lincoln Navigator with the license plate returning to Jackson with a local listed address of 4000 Tanglewood Lane, which is the Tanglewood North Apartments, the affidavit stated.

After speaking with Herrera and Lujan, both reportedly told police they responded to assist Deanda with detaining Jackson at the open driver’s door of the Navigator. Herrera and Lujan stated that upon their arrival Jackson drove the Navigator in reverse, striking both Herrera and Lujan with the still open driver’s door, causing both Herrera and Lujan to fall to the ground and running over Herrera’s right arm with the Navigator’s left-front wheel.

Jackson was later located by other OPD officers in the area of Tanglewood Lane and E. 42nd Street, the affidavit stated.

Jackson was booked into the Ector County Law Enforcement Center on Sept. 10, jail records show. She has two bonds totaling $150,000 and she was still in custody as of Tuesday morning.
