The DEA Task Force and the Caddo-Shreveport Narcotics Unit have arrested a Shreveport man after uncovering drugs and suspected stolen silver in his house.

Sloan Jackson, 38, was taken into custody Saturday, after agents executed a search warrant at 3129 Woodlawn Ave. with the assistance of the Caddo Sheriff’s Special Response Team. During the search, agents located 457.6 grams (approximately one pound) of methamphetamine inside a wax candle.

Also seized were three baggies of methamphetamine, a small amount of marijuana, a variety of vials containing suspected steroids, syringes, methamphetamine pipes, drug scales, Lortabs, multiple vials of other unknown substances and six baggies of unknown powder substances.

Also found during the search were items believed to be stolen, including 150 one-ounce silver bars, two chainsaws, a welding machine, a Keurig coffee maker, two Frigidare air conditioner units, four generators, one computer, an electric smoker, a leaf blower, a Samsung entertainment system, a credit card maker and printer and approximately $2,400 in cash.

A continuation of the investigation at another location resulted in the seizure of 1,702 additional one-ounce silver bars valued at approximately $35,000.

Jackson was charged with possession of schedule II (methamphetamine) with intent to distribute, possession of more than 400 grams of methamphetamine and two counts of schedule III CDS. Additional charges are pending.
