Americus-- The man said to be the most notorious drug dealer in Americus is in jail. Thirty-two-year-old Roger Lee Jackson III, known as "Jack Daddy", is charged with distribution of crack cocaine.

Federal drug agents have been investigating Jackson for nearly a year. Investigators say when Jackson was first arrested earlier this summer, friends threw "Free Jack Daddy" parties, selling T-shirts and hats to bail him out.

 Jackson was indicted by a federal Grand Jury earlier this month, and is now being held at the Sumter County Jail.
