            JEREMY ALLEN CRESON pleaded guilty to possession of a firearm during a drug trafficking crime today before U.S. Magistrate Judge John D. Love.

            According to information presented in court, on Apr. 3, 2009, Creson was found to be illegally distributing methamphetamine in Kilgore, Texas, during which time he was also in possession of a firearm.  On Aug. 10, 2009, Creson was again found to be in possession of 2.5 grams of methamphetamine, which he also intended to distribute.  On Nov. 4, 2009, a federal grand jury returned a federal indictment charging Creson with federal drug and firearms violations.
