Authorities reached out to 7 Action News reporter Ann Marie LaFlamme asking for your help to feature Jackson – yet again – as Detroit's Most Wanted.

The 9-month-old baby girl was found safe, but the U.S. Marshals say they feared this danger when we first featured Jackson on Detroit’s Most Wanted in August 2017 .

Jackson was busted with 1.4 grams of Fentanyl and $3,972. He's now in Crawford County Jail awaiting extradition to the Highland Park Police Department.
