A Syn /

SHREVEPORT, La. - Acting United States Attorney Alexander C. Van Hook announced the resolution of three cases today in the Western District of Louisiana. The cases sentenced today are as follows: Allen Jackson, 32, of Pineville, Louisiana, was sentenced by United States District Judge David C. Joseph to 72 months in prison, followed by 3 years of supervised release, on drug charges. Jackson pleaded guilty on August 4, 2021 to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine.

The charge was the result of an investigation by law enforcement agents in connection with a package that was delivered to a house in Jonesville, Louisiana on August 21, 2020. The package contained approximately 1,490 grams of methamphetamine and was delivered to the house of one of Jackson’s relatives. Law enforcement officers learned during their investigation that Jackson conspired with others to have the package of methamphetamine delivered to his relative’s address. He provided the address of the relative’s house to his co-conspirators with the understanding that he would be compensated in cash and/or methamphetamine in exchange for providing the delivery address.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney John W. Nickel prosecuted the case.
