20-year-old Jackson Martin says he was just “out walking his dog” and was never inside any stolen vehicle, and has no idea how the key fob to the stolen vehicle got inside his pants pocket. That’s what Martin told police as Dawn Smith’s stolen Lexus was pinged to a Players Court address Saturday. Martin had reportedly driven the vehicle to the location for someone to repair a broken headlight. Multiple people at the location confirmed that Martin drove the vehicle there and observed him in the driver’s seat.
Jackson Martin of Liberty Hills in Franklin, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on November 5th, charged with theft of a vehicle. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $3,000.
