Wanted Man Found Hiding Inside "Remarkably Small" Dryer In Arrest Wrinkle

In an attempt to hide from police, a wanted Florida Man somehow folded himself into a small front-loading dryer, a feat of audacity and pliablility that was eventually thwarted.

David Jackson, 31, was being sought by cops on felony assault and weapons charges when investigators received a tip that Jackson was inside a Pensacola residence.

During a search Friday of the residence, deputies discovered Jackson inside the laundry room. Inside “a remarkably small dryer drum,” cops reported. Jackson, wearing a purple Star Wars t-shirt, was pulled from the appliance and arrested.

Jackson, pictured in these police photos, is being held in the Escambia County lockup in lieu of $120,000 bond.

According to a June 2023 police report, Jackson is 5' 10" tall and weighs 150 pounds. TSG is endeavoring to determine the make and model of the dryer/bolthole.

As reported in these pages, a man facing felony and misdemeanor narcotics charges was found earlier this year hiding inside a dryer in the kitchen of a Louisiana home.
