Suspect in custody after drugs found inside Jackson home
JACKSON (AP) - The Jackson Police Department said a suspect is in custody after drugs, a stolen handgun and $26,000 in cash were found inside a residence.
The Southeast Missourian reported the arrest comes after an investigation this month by Jackson police and the Drug Enforcement Administration. Law enforcement officials obtained a search warrant and found inside the home oxycodone pills, drug paraphernalia and a large amount of marijuana.
The department also said a .45-caliber handgun that had been reported stolen in Arkansas was found.
Charges are pending against the suspect.
