NEW ORLEANS, LA – U.S. Attorney Duane A. Evans announced today that CURTIS WILLIAMSON JR., age 40, of Houma, LA, was indicted on August 10, 2023 on one (1) count of Possession with Intent to Distribute a Controlled Dangerous Substance in violation of Title 21, United States Code, Sections 841(a)(1) and 841(b)(1)(A) and one (1) count of Possession of Firearms during a Drug Trafficking Offense in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 924(c)(1)(A).  The indictment was previously sealed and was unsealed on August 23, 2023.

According to the indictment, following a complaint that WILLIAMSON JR. trafficked illegal narcotics, a search warrant was executed on WILLIAMSON JR.’s residence by Terrebonne Parish Sherriff’s Office after which multiple kilograms of methamphetamine and numerous firearms were discovered.

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and gun violence, and to make our neighborhoods safer for everyone.  On May 26, 2021, the Department launched a violent crime reduction strategy strengthening PSN based on these core principles: fostering trust and legitimacy in our communities, supporting community-based organizations that help prevent violence from occurring in the first place, setting focused and strategic enforcement priorities, and measuring the results.

United States Attorney Evans reiterated that the indictment is merely a charge and that the guilt of the defendant must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.

United States Attorney Evans praised the work of the Drug Enforcement Administration and Terrebonne Parish Sherriff’s Office.  This case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Stuart Theriot of the Narcotics Unit.
