Longview, TX — The Kilgore Police Department released a statement Tuesday highlighting a series of drug busts since September which they said demonstrated their commitment to keeping Kilgore free from crime and drugs.
“We want to make our community safe. Period. And we don’t want that kind of behavior here,” said Kilgore police spokesman Capt. Roman Roberson.
The department assisted an investigation that resulted in the arrest of a Dallas man — Walley Jackson — who they say was part of a large ring transporting drugs to East Texas.
This month, police seized drugs, drug paraphernalia and weapons from a Kilgore residence. In that case, two Kilgore men — James Ferguson, 24, and Cecil Babb, 26 — were arrested at the time of the second bust, according to the statement.
