Sheriff's Narcotics Division Shuts Down Established Crack House, Multiple Arrests Made, LIVINGSTON, June 6, 2008 - On June 4, 2008, the Polk County Sheriff's Office Narcotics Division conducted an undercover operation at the end of Mouse Brown Road off of FM 350 South.
Lieutenant Andy Lowrie conducted surveillance on the residence in question and during this time, Lowrie watched as vehicles pulled up to the residence and purchased crack cocaine from Maurice Jackson, 37, of Livingston. The Sheriff's Department Narcotics Division had already purchased crack cocaine from Jackson on another undercover operation, with that transaction and information provided by Lowrie, a search warrant for the residence was obtained. During the operation the vehicles leaving the residence were stopped further down the road and the suspects were arrested for possession and other charges.
Sheriff's Office personnel executed the search warrant on the residence, at which time 4 suspects at the residence were detained. During the search, weapons, crack cocaine, prescription medication, suspected stolen property, and pipes used to smoke crack cocaine were located within. According to Lowrie, other residents on Mouse Brown Road were warning the suspects who were purchasing the drugs that cops were waiting further down the road. This leads one to believe that some of the residents on Mouse Brown road, do in fact know what's going on at Jackson's residence, but do not want to change the situation for the better.
During the ongoing operation which culminated on June 4, 2008, the Sheriff's Narcotics Division had made approximately 20 arrests of suspects who had purchased crack cocaine from the crack house on Mouse Brown Road.
