Two Natchitoches women arrested on money laundering charges

Warren and Harris Arrest

According to a Task Force Official, Natchitoches Multi-Jurisdictional Drug Task Force (NMJDTF) agents obtained search warrants for two residences in Natchitoches Parish on March 23. This was in reference to an ongoing narcotics investigation into reports that monies were being collected for Detention Center inmate Reginald Warren. Warren is in the DC for numerous narcotics charges which resulted from NMJDTF agents seizing over four pounds of suspected Crystal Methamphetamine, over 17,000 suspected Ecstasy pills, and over $28,000. Agents identified several subjects in the City who were receiving instructions from Warren to obtain monies from numerous subjects on his behalf. The monies being collected by these subjects were alleged to be monies derived from the illegal sales of narcotics.

Tammy Warren (B/F 34) was taken into custody on Texas Street for Driving Under Suspension. NMJDFT agents then executed a search warrant at her residence in the 700 block of Quida Drive. During this search they seized $1,220.

Aqualious Harris (B/F 27) was taken into custody at her residence in the 100 block of Franklin Lane. Agents seized $1,400, a small amount of suspected Marijuana, and letters from Reginald.

Tammy and Aqualious were charged with 1 count of Money Laundering and released on bond.

The Natchitoches Multi-Jurisdictional Drug Task Force would like to thank the Citizens of Natchitoches for their support. Many times an investigation begins with a simple phone call or tip from a concerned citizen. For this reason the Task Force encourages all citizens to report any crimes in their neighborhoods anonymously by calling 318-357-2248, The Natchitoches Police Department, or the Natchitoches Parish Sheriffs Office.
