Keith Jackson Jr. in drug bust

Posted By on Fri, Jun 5, 2009 at 10:19 AM


Former Razorback lineman Keith Jackson Jr. was among three men and a woman arrested in a Little Rock narcotics bust, police announced this morning. Jackson was picked in the 2007 NFL draft, but never made it onto the roster of an NFL team. His father, a pro football star and Hog color commentator, is the founder of a Little Rock nonprofit that works with at-risk kids.

Jackson made no comment during a municipal court appearance this morning where a $50,000 bond was set. It hadn't been posted as of 10:30 a.m., but he was still among the morning defendants being held for a return to the jail then. Two pounds of marijuana, 50 tabs of MDMA (Ecstasy) and a gram of cocaine were seized in the bust.

The police report:

On 06-04-09, members of the Little Rock Police Department Narcotics Detail engaged in the following activities:

The Narcotics Detail with the assistance of the SWAT Team executed a Search and Seizure warrant at 15501 Capitol Hill Boulevard, #602, Little Rock, Arkansas.  As a result of the Search warrant David Adams, B/M, DOB:  05-12-82 and Lacanna Smith, B/F, DOB:  11-17-84 both of 15501 Capitol Hill Boulevard #602, Keith Jackson Jr., B/M, DOB:  02-25-85, of 9820 Dobby Drive, and Marvin Johnson, B/M, DOB:  09-09-86 of 1001 Breckenridge Drive #876, were arrested. 

Mr. Adams and Ms. Smith were charged with Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Deliver, Possession of Cocaine with Intent to Deliver, Possession of MDMA with Intent to Deliver, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Maintaining a Drug Premises and Endangering the Welfare of a Minor.  Mr. Johnson and Mr. Jackson were charged with Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Deliver, Possession of Cocaine with Intent to Deliver, Possession of MDMA with Intent to Deliver, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Criminal Use of Another’s Property. 

The Detail recovered approximately two pounds of marijuana, 1 gram of cocaine, 50 MDMA pills numerous scales and $2,500.00.  Two minor children were at the residence at the time of the search warrant.

(NOTE: Police explains the criminal use of property charge. The suspects allegedly rented the apartment to use as a drug selling point. Lt. Terry Hastings said a relatively new state law allows the charge for use of others' property for illegal purposes.)
