Bossier Sheriff Larry Deen says a Haughton man was arrested late Monday night for possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, stalking, resisting by giving false information, driving under suspension, open container, no proof of insurance, expired motor vehicle inspection sticker and faulty equipment.

46-year-old Jackie Glynn Murray, of Haughton, was arrested after a Bossier Sheriff’s deputy was investigating a suspicious vehicle on Highway 157 parked across the street from a house. While en route, the vehicle left the scene, heading south on 157. 

Eventually, the deputy stopped the vehicle on Highway 157, just south of Bellevue Road. Initially, Murray identified himself as “Tracey” Murray.

During the deputy’s body search of Murray, he found a Louisiana I.D. with the name “Jackie” Murray, and Murray admitted Jackie was his real first name. After further checking, the deputy discovered that Murray did have a suspended driver’s license and was unable to provide any proof of insurance on the vehicle. The 1995 Ford F-150 also had an expired inspection sticker and a head light out. Deputies also found an open container of beer in the center console.

During the vehicle search, deputies found a bag with two glass smoking pipes and a clear plastic bag containing meth. The investigation then led deputies to contact Murray’s ex-girlfriend, and she told them Murray has been stalking her for quite some time.

Murray was booked into the Bossier Maximum Security Facility. His bond is pending.
