Agents with the DEA Task Force, the Caddo-Shreveport Narcotics Unit, and the Caddo Sheriff's Special Response Team have arrested a Shreveport man after executing a search warrant at his home.  

38-year-old Sloan Jackson has been booked into Caddo Correctional Center on charges of possessing methamphetamine with intent to distribute, possessing methamphetamine, and two counts of possessing Schedule III narcotics.  And agents say additional charges are pending.

Inside his home at 3129 Woodlawn Ave., agents found nearly a pound of methamphetamine inside a modified wax candle.  They also seized three baggies of meth, a small amount of marijuana, a variety of vials containing suspected steroids, syringes, meth pipes, drug scales, Lortabs, several vials of other unknown substances, and six baggies of unknown powder substances.

But that's just the beginning.  Agents also found an assortment of mostly brand new items believed to be stolen.  Those items included two chainsaws, a welding machine, a Keurig coffee maker, two Frigidaire air conditioner units, four generators, one computer, an electric smoker, a leaf blower, a Samsung entertainment system, and a credit card maker and printer.  They also found approximately $2400 in cash.

But here's the biggie.  Inside Jackson's Woodlawn Ave. house, the agents found a box containing 150 one-ounce silver bars.  Then, at another undisclosed location, they found another 1,702 of those one-ounce silver bars.  They're valued at approximately $35,000! Agents are working, now, to try to determine whether the silver bars are stolen or whether they were bought by Jackson in an effort to laundry drug proceeds.
