One felony is he (Geary Jackson) had a gun as a felon and the other is he had a weapon while also committing a felony, Lebanon Police Chief Scott Bowen explained.{phocagallery view=category|categoryid=81|imageid=551|displayname=1|float=right}


Bowen said the search warrant was executed early Thursday morning after receiving multiple complaints that the men living at 615 Cleveland Street were reportedly selling drugs from the residence. When officers entered the home, they reportedly found Lortab and Opana pills, marijuana, drug paraphernalia and money believed to be profits from selling narcotics.

Detectives seized pills, marijuana, drug paraphernalia, the gun and two vehicles and more than $5,000 in cash.


Bowen noted Lortab and Opana are extended relief, highly addictive pain pills. He said the unintended use of prescription medication is one of the biggest problems in the local community.


We have a huge problem with Lortab and Opana specifically, he said.


Bowen noted the two men arrested also have a long criminal history with Reginald Jackson currently on supervised federal release for the sale of cocaine after being charged in an investigation by the Drug Enforcement Agency.


Bowen also said Geary Jackson is on state parole for the sale and possession of cocaine. He added both have at least 10 prior drug convictions.


Geary specifically will face many years in prison, Bowen said, referring to his possession of a weapon. Bowen said they plan to notify the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, or ATF about Geary Jacksons possession of a weapon.


Both men were released on bond yesterday. Reginald Jackson was released on $2,500 bond and Geary Jackson was released on $24,750 bond.
