The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office uncovered a large amount of stolen property at a residence on Highway 84 E in the Tenaha area on October 24.


SCSO Chief Deputy DJ Dickerson and Lieutenant Kevin Windham began investigating the incident after the DeSoto Parish Sheriff’s Office reported a burglary in Logansport, LA involving a U-Haul truck.

Information was received that the U-Haul truck was seen at the residence in the Tenaha area and the residents were selling items from the yard of the property.Chief Dickerson, Lieutenant Windham and DPSO Sergeant Armstrong were met by the homeowner, Michael Foxworth, who cooperated in allowing the officers to look in the U-Haul. Michael advised that his son, Jaron Foxworth and Jaron’s girlfriend, Alexis Dickson, had been in the U-Haul, but were not there at that time. Michael stated Jaron and Dickson were driving a yellow GMC pickup.

While the officers were speaking with Michael, the yellow GMC turned in to the residence and immediately backed out. Officers were able to catch up with the vehicle and found Jaron and Dickson inside. While officers were questioning the suspects, Dickson was observed attempting to conceal a substance suspected to be methamphetamine in the dash of the GMC truck. Dickson was removed from the vehicle and produced a glass pipe to Lt. Windham. Dickson admitted the pipe was used for smoking meth. The total weight of the substance was 22.77 grams.

Officers placed Jaron and Dickson under arrest and began questioning the suspects about property located in the vehicle being a pirogue boat and a framed painting. Both suspects told officers the items were purchased from an individual. Inconsistencies in the stories led Chief Dickerson to further question Dickson and she admitted they stole the items from an abandoned residence on Highway 84 towards Joaquin. Dickson further admitted that the property in the U-Haul at the residence was stolen. Two guns were also recovered from behind the seat area of the GMC.

During the course of the investigation, items have been recovered from burglaries in Liberty County, Nacogdoches County, Shelby County and DeSoto Parish Louisiana.

Alexis Dickson was booked into the SCSO for: VOP Liberty County: OC: POCS (F4 – NO BOND); POCS, penalty group 1>=4g<200g (F2).

Jaron Foxworth was booked for: VOP Liberty County; POCS – NO BOND, penalty group 1>=4g<200g (F2); Unlawful possession of firearm by felon (F3).

As this investigation continues, more charges will be filed.

The SCSO would like to thank the DeSoto Parish Sheriff’s Office for their assistance in this investigation.
