Comments Off on Methamphetamine Fiend on Epic Bad Acid Trip, George Jacobson, 23, Terrorizes Town of Roy for a Week

In a drug-induced rampage of weirdness, George Jacobson allegedly broke into people’s houses and demanded home-cooked meals, clothes, guns and rides to McDonalds, then asked them not to call the police.

A young and hapless meth addict faces 14 criminal charges—including robbery, burglary, kidnapping, theft of a firearm, criminal trespassing and vehicle prowling—after a bad dose of acid unleashed his demons on an unsuspecting town in Washington state. During a wild week-long rampage, George Jacobson, 23, allegedly managed to terrorize at least six people in the town of Roy, where he broke into two houses, stole two guns and a car, and compelled his victims to make him home-cooked meals and drive him to McDonald’s.

Court documents obtained by Vocativ offer a vivid snapshot of the carnage as Jacobson bumbled through a drug-induced odyssey that he at one point described as a “spiritual journey.” Calls and emails to each of the victims went unanswered, except for one woman who says she is still too spooked to talk to the press.

The epic spree began on Sept. 26 when Sherman Deach discovered Jacobson clutching a single black boot inside his barn. When Deach demanded to know what hell he was doing, Jacobson silently dropped to his knees and threw his hands in the air.

But it didn’t take long for the drug-addled suspect to find himself in another pickle. Within a half hour, Jacobson had managed to break into a neighboring house, take a handgun from the back bedroom and find himself face-to-face with the terrified homeowner, Nikki Foster, in her kitchen.

According to court records, Jacobson appeared to be in a huff. “The suspect’s emotions were up and down and did not make sense,” reads the account. As he waved the gun in Foster’s direction, he couldn’t stop talking about her mean neighbor and his mean dogs.

“What do you want?” Foster finally asked.

Food and a glass of water, Jacobson barked. Foster complied, but told the suspect that he couldn’t just go around breaking into people’s homes. He told her that he was on a “spiritual journey” and that he had “jewels.” To prove it, he pulled out his black boot and dumped a number of items out of the footwear. He told Foster that she was nice and reminded her not to call the cops.

Eventually, she convinced Jacobson to go see her husband, Thomas, who was out working on the couple’s property. Thomas Foster told his wife to go back inside, then drove Jacobson to the end of the driveway and warned him not to come back. Only later did the husband discover that his gun was missing.

For the next few days, Jacobson’s whereabouts remained unknown, though he later told authorities he had wandered between the towns of McKenna and Rainier, about a 14-mile journey each way. But on Oct. 3, he returned to Roy with a freshly shaved head looking to stir up more trouble.

First, an employee at the Brighton Creek Conference Center caught Jacobson sifting through his vehicle. Spooked, Jacobson ran off, leaving a stash of stolen knives behind in the man’s car. Jacobson turned up about 10 minutes later in the home of Sally Andrews, who lives near the conference center on 42nd Avenue South. The 66-year-old woman quickly noticed that the strange man in her house was holding both her wallet and her breath mints, which had been inside her car parked outside.

“Don’t scream!” Jacobson told Andrews, according to court documents, and promised he wouldn’t hurt her. Andrews says she then went for her wallet, but got knocked to the floor. She eventually ran into the backyard to let her dog loose on the intruder, but it was too late. He had already hopped in her Honda Accord and driven off.

Cops later found Andrews’ vehicle in a ditch with no driver. Around the same time, Robert Sheets found Jacobson inside his 95th Avenue Court South home. Wearing nothing but a pair of red shorts—with a gun belonging to Sheets poking out from a towel wrapped around his hand—the suspect demanded a fresh pair of clothes. He got them. Then Jacobson told Sheets he wanted a ride home to Rainier, about 8 miles away. The men got into Sheets’ truck.Meth-Acid-Rampage-Washington-0102272489265

During the short drive, Jacobson got thirsty and insisted they make a quick stop at McDonald’s. The two got soft drinks at the drive-thru, then Sheets dropped off the suspect in Rainier. Cops picked Jacobson up soon after.

With a fresh scar in the middle of his forehead, and appearing painfully high, Jacobson asked police how many charges he was facing. He admitted that he usually uses meth, but had taken acid about a week before and had been blacking out ever since.

Jacobson added that he did remember taking somebody’s car. And he recalled that a nice man had taken him to McDonald’s. He remains locked up in the Pierce County Jail in lieu of a $1 million bond.
