POLICE

Jack L. Jeffers, 25, was charged with manslaughter in the second-degree, following a lengthy investigation into the disappearance of Michael P. Ahern in the town of Stillwater, according to a statement from the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office. A missing person complaint involving Ahern was first filed with the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office on Jan. 15, 2019. Ahern was 42 years old at that time. Jeffers is accused of shooting and killing Ahern on Jan. 6, 2019 during a personal dispute. Ahern was living at a building formerly used as a clubhouse for the now defunct Rolling Pride Motorcycle Club on Brickyard Road in the Town of Stillwater, where the alleged incident occurred, according to the Sheriff’s Office.  Jeffers was previously charged in 2019 with other offenses related to this investigation, including grand larceny, tampering with evidence and criminal possession of a weapon.  It is alleged that in the months following the killing of Ahern, Jeffers disposed of evidence of the crime, stole a truck belonging to Ahern and was found to be in possession of illegally possessed firearms.
