Jacksonville police officers investigating a shots fired call returned to the department with a Palestine man in custody, Detective Sgt. Daniel Franklin said. Gregory Sloan, 21, was arrested for delivery of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana Feb. 20.

“Officers responded to the call on the 1400 block of E. Rusk just before 2:30 a.m.,” Franklin said. “They were given a description of a vehicle fleeing the scene.”

He said an officer observed a vehicle matching the description given and pulled the driver over for a parking violation. Franklin said about 18.5 grams of marijuana, 10 grams of crack cocaine and nine grams of powder cocaine were found in the vehicle, as well as a rifle and items used for the sale of narcotics.

Sloan was still in custody Tuesday with a bond set at $52,000. If convicted, he could face confinement for up to live or a term from five to 99 years in prison and an optional fine of up to $10,000 for the first degree felony charge of delivery of a controlled substance.

He could also face confinement for up to 180 days in county jail and a fine of up to $2,000 for the Class B misdemeanor charge of possession of marijuana.

It was not determined whether or not Sloan had fired the shot which resulted in the call.
