NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA – KELVIN WARREN (“WARREN”), age 30, a resident of Bogalusa, Louisiana, was sentenced on March 28, 2024 by U.S. District Judge Barry Ashe, to  130 months imprisonment, five years of supervised release, and the payment of a $100.00 mandatory special assessment fee, after previously pleading guilty to possession with the intent to distribute over 500 grams of methamphetamine and over 40 grams of fentanyl, in violation of Title 21, United States Code, Sections 841(a)(1) and (b)(1)(A).

According to court documents, on January 27, 2022, WARREN occupied a vehicle that was pulled over by the police during a traffic stop.  During a vehicle search, police located a bag on the front passenger floorboard at WARREN’s feet, that contained approximately 1.7 pounds of methamphetamine, 5.8 ounces of fentanyl, a scale, and other drug paraphernalia.

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.         

This case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives and the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office.  The prosecution was handled by Assistant United States Attorney Maurice E. Landrieu, Jr. of the Narcotics Unit.
