KILGORE, TX (KLTV) -

The Kilgore Police Department maintains aggressive enforcement when it comes to drugs in the community they serve and the crime that always seems to follow. Lately the Department demonstrated their commitment in keeping the community of Kilgore free from crime and drugs with several arrest and drug seizures.

The Kilgore Police Department's DEA Task Force Officer recently investigated a case involving Walley Jackson of Dallas, Texas who was identified as a major supplier of large quantities of Methamphetamine (ICE) to the East Texas area including Kilgore. Jackson pled guilty to Conspiracy to Possess with Intent to Distribute and was sentenced to 57 months federal time. Other members of this drug distribution ring were identified as Jennifer Northcutt, 42 years of age, of Mineola, TX Stacie Serenko, 35 years of age, of Tyler, TX and Billie Earl Johnson, 49 years of age, of Van, TX. They were each federally indicted in September 2012 for one count of Conspiracy to Possess with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine, four counts of Possession with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine and Possession of a Firearm in Furtherance to a Drug Trafficking Crime.

Also in November, a traffic stop yielded two arrests for marijuana possession; police located the residence in Kilgore the drugs were being sold from. A search of the residence (located on Fritz-Swanson Road) by police revealed close to a pound of marijuana which had been packaged for distribution. Other drug paraphernalia were taken to include scales, rolling papers, and plastic bags. A shotgun was also seized. A resident at the location identified as Eric King, 22 years of age, of Kilgore was arrested for Possession of Marijuana and Evading Arrest.

    At this time last year, a guy by the name of Dak Prescott was still on the draft board. In fact, the Mississippi State star didn't hear his named called until Saturday during the fourth round. Luckily for the Cowboys, Prescott turned out to be the hidden gem of the 2016 draft class.
