A Shallotte man was sentenced today to 168 months in prison for one count of Conspiracy to Distribute and Possess with Intent to Distribute 28 Grams or More of Cocaine Base (Crack) and one count of Possession with Intent to Distribute Cocaine Base (Crack). 

According to court documents, Malcolm Lamont Jackson, 47, pleaded guilty to the charges on May 11, 2020. 

In 2018, investigators with the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office received information that Jackson was selling large amounts of cocaine base (crack) and cocaine in Brunswick County, North Carolina. 

On May 29, 2018, investigators received information that Jackson was going to be traveling to Whiteville, North Carolina to be re-supplied with cocaine. Investigators conducted a traffic stop of Jackson, and he was found in possession of marijuana, cocaine base (crack), cocaine, alprazolam (Xanax) pills, currency, and two cell phones. Jackson admitted that he had been selling cocaine base (crack) for more than four months. 

On December 6, 2018, agents observed Jackson driving at a high rate of speed in Brunswick County. Jackson then stopped suddenly, causing agents to have to make an evasive lane change to avoid a collision. Jackson then made a U-turn and fled in the opposite direction before turning into a driveway, opening the door, and starting to flee. Agents ordered Jackson to stop, and he finally complied. On Jackson’s person, agents found 8.07 grams of cocaine base (crack) and marijuana. Jackson then admitted he had been selling cocaine. 

On February 14, 2019, agents were at a gas station in Shallotte when they detected a strong odor of marijuana emanating from a nearby vehicle, and they noticed Jackson standing by it. Jackson entered the vehicle and departed the gas station. Agents attempted to conduct a traffic stop, but Jackson attempted to elude officers by turning down a dirt road. As he drove, Jackson threw objects from his car window, which were later recovered and determined to be cocaine base (crack), cocaine, and marijuana. Agents also found currency in Jackson’s vehicle. Jackson was arrested. 

Information from additional witnesses determined that Jackson had been selling cocaine base (crack) since at least January 2017. 

Robert J. Higdon, Jr., U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of North Carolina made the announcement after sentencing by Chief U.S. District Judge Terrence W. Boyle. The Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) investigated the case and Assistant U.S. Attorney Scott A. Lemmon  prosecuted the case.
