TAYLOR and BOLDEN are also charged with distribution of heroin on or about July 26, 2013, resulting in the death of Kevin Ryan. Several of the defendants are charged with additional counts of distributing heroin and using telephones in furtherance of heroin trafficking. According to the indictment, GRIFFIN faces an additional charge of maintaining a drug-involved premise for allowing a residence located at 4848 Deanne Street in New Orleans to be used for drug-related activities.
“The arrests made today are part of DEA’s response to the addiction, crime, violence, and despair brought on by the growing threat of heroin,” stated DEA Special Agent in Charge Keith Brown. “Heroin is a killer that does not discriminate. It destroys lives, families, and hope in every segment of society; and the individuals who sell heroin are spreading potential death in every foil package sold on the streets of this country. DEA, working shoulder to shoulder with law enforcement agencies across the New Orleans area, is fully committed to stopping the spread of this deadly drug and to bringing to justice those who profit from the misery created by heroin.”
“The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office has a long-standing and proud partnership with our federal law enforcement partners. The work we do together is helping remove life-threatening drugs from our communities and making sure that those who would supply these drugs to others face the consequences of their actions,” stated St. Tammany Sheriff Jack Strain.
