According to a Natchitoches Multi-Jurisdictional Drug Task Force official, the Natchitoches Police Crime Suppression Unit contacted NMJDTF agents Feb. 27 in reference to information they received about stolen firearms being located in one of the J.W. Thomas Complex apartments.
The NMJDTF and the Natchitoches Parish Sheriffs Office Criminal Investigation Division were actively investigating several suspects in the complex in reference to active investigations involving stolen firearms. Upon receiving this new information NMJDTF, NPSO CID detectives and NPD Crime Suppression Units went to J.W apartment k-4. Several individuals ran inside the apartment upon seeing police.
Officers got the individuals back outside the apartment and contained the scene. Based on information gained at the scene, NMJDTF agents obtained a search warrant for the apartment. As a result, investigators seized three handguns and approximately 28 grams of suspected marijuana from the residence. Two of the firearms were confirmed stolen.
