ATF, U.S. Marshals team up with Paris police and Lamar County Sheriff’s deputies for a drug bust in town

Officials with Paris Police Department, Lamar County Sheriff’s Office, United States Marshals and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives served a search warrant Monday night in the 500 block of Deshong Drive where two men were wanted for federal conspiracy charges.

Paris Police Lt. John Berry said when officials searched the home, they found Jimmy Jackson, 50, Leon Jackson, 51, and Yvonne Owen, 47.

“Leon was found to be in possession of a small quantity of methamphetamine,” Berry said. “He was also charged with possession of a controlled substance.”

While searching the home, Berry said officials found 2 ounces of methamphetamine, which resulted in Jimmy and Owen being charged with manufacturing or delivery of a controlled substance.

All three were taken to Lamar County Jail. Jimmy was charged with manufacturing or delivery of a controlled substance, penalty group 1, between 4-200 grams and conspiracy/possession with intent to deliver meth. Leon was charged with possession of a controlled substance, penalty group 1, less than 1 gram, conspiracy/possession with intent to deliver meth and non-payment of a failure to maintain financial responsibility. Owen was charged with manufacturing or delivery of a controlled substance, penalty group 1, between 4-200 grams. No bonds will be set for the conspiracy charges against the Jacksons, and no bond has yet been set for Owen.
