Tallulah man sentenced for trafficking methamphetamine

MONROE, La. – Patrick Senclair Jackson, 46, of Tallulah, Louisiana, was sentenced by United States District Judge Terry A. Doughty to 120 months (10 years) in prison, followed by 5 years of supervised release, for drug trafficking.

Jackson was indicted by a federal grand jury in September 2020 and pleaded guilty on March 3, 2021 to distribution of methamphetamine and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime. The drug trafficking charges are the result of an investigation into the illegal activities of Jackson.

Law enforcement agents were familiar with Jackson’s involvement in drug trafficking as they had previously purchased methamphetamine from him in June 2019 during an undercover operation. The methamphetamine that was purchased from Jackson during the undercover operation was later sent to the crime lab and confirmed to be 8.87 grams of methamphetamine.

In November 2019, law enforcement agents initiated a traffic stop of Jackson to execute an outstanding arrest warrant on him. During the traffic stop, agents observed a revolver in the driver’s side door of the vehicle he was driving. Law enforcement agents obtained a search warrant and found 9.17 net grams of powder cocaine, 1.95 grams of crack cocaine and less than one gram of methamphetamine, and other drug paraphernalia.

The DEA, ATF, and Louisiana State Police conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Brandon B. Brown prosecuted the case.
