A Lake Worth woman was arrested Friday after she was allegedly found selling rocks of crack cocaine in front of a convenience store, according to an arrest report.
When Palm Beach County sheriff’s deputies attempted to arrest the woman, she ran. After a foot pursuit, the woman was tased and fell to the ground where she was handcuffed.
Tiffany Jackson is facing charges of possession of cocaine, resisting arrest without violence and escape. She is being held at the Palm Beach County Jail in lieu of $5,000.
Jackson, 26, also faced escape charges when she allegedly tried to flee deputies during an arrest May 14, 2015. Jackson served 46 days in jail in that case.
Deputies were called Friday to the Kwik Stop at 1001 S. Dixie Highway, near 1oth Avenue South, after reports that a woman — later identified as Jackson — was outside the front door selling crack, the report said.
Jackson allegedly produced a plastic bag with several rocks of crack hidden inside her top. When a deputy tried to apply handcuffs, Jackson allegedly took off. She was dropped by the Taser strike and arrested.
Jackson was in possession of 1.3 grams of cocaine, the report said.
