A Walker County grand jury has returned three felony indictments against a man accused of drug manufacturing and possession of a firearm by a felon during its recent session. 

Christian Jackson, 32, of Huntsville was initially arrested July 30 after an anonymous tip alerted the Huntsville Police Department that a wanted man was at Huntsville Memorial Hospital.
