Police find Navy deserter in Matoaka area

MATOAKA — Jackie Combs Jr., 39, formerly of Rock, has been a resident of the Bluefield City Jail since Friday night when Matoaka Police Chief John Sommers arrested him following a routine traffic stop.

After making the stop, Sommers made a routine NCIC (National Crime Information Center) check to see if there were any outstanding wants and warrants for the subject, and got a hit that he was wanted by the Navy.

“He had been out for quite a while,” Sommers said. “He had just failed to report for duty.”

Sommers said that he has an appointment at 8 a.m. this morning to talk with the Navy about Combs.
