Joe Stewart Jackson, 48 of Big Lake, appeared before 112th District Judge Pete Gomez Wednesday and plead guilty to drug related charges stemming from 2016 and 2017.

Jackson is fresh off another arrest last Friday following a raid on his home at 801 N Plaza Avenue.

That arrest was the result of a multi-agency raid on the home where the Reagan County Sheriff’s Department teamed up with Texas DPS’ Special Response Team to execute a search warrant.

DPS used flash-bang grenades as the agencies breached the home in the early morning hours last Friday.

DPS also provided a helicopter to provide aerial surveillance of the home during the raid.

In all, seven grams of methamphetamine were seized during Reagan County Sheriff’s Department’s first drug raid of 2019.

In 2016, Jackson was arrested for methamphetamine as a result of a traffic stop next to the Reagan County Law Enforcement Center.

He was arrested again in 2017 following a raid on his 801 N Plaza Avenue home which netted over 400 grams of meth.

In the 2016 and 2017 cases, Jackson was charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver in a Drug Free Zone, a First Degree Felony, and two counts of Possession of a Controlled Substance, both State Jail Felonies.

Jackson entered a guilty plea for the 2016 and 2017 charges and also included the recent charges he picked up last Friday.

The two most recent charges were Manufacture/Delivery of a Controlled Substance, Penalty Grade 1, Between 4 Grams and 200 Grams and Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity (Since he was at the house with three other individuals who were charged similarly. Those men are William Clark, Braydon Jackson and Dakota Roberson)

Both of those charges are First Degree Felonies.

Following his guilty plea, Jackson was sentenced to 25 years in a Texas Department of Criminal Justice prison facility.

He must also pay a fine of $500, restitution of $180 and $334 for court costs.
