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.
