Jeannie Cole told deputies that her son 35-year-old Jason Thompson had allegedly assaulted her and then stole her pickup truck on Setting Sun Drive around 8:30 pm Wednesday. Deputies saw the truck a couple hours later and stopped it on Canyon Road and Highway 273. Thompson was arrested and charged with auto theft, carjacking, and driving with a suspended license. 


Cole believes her son could have been under the influence of narcotics.
