Westbank Drug Dealer Sentenced

U.S. Attorney Duane A. Evans announced that TOSH TOUSSAINT, age 27, was sentenced to 62 months in the Bureau of Prisons, with a term of three years of supervised release to follow.  TOUSSAINT previously pleaded guilty to one count of possession with the intent to distribute cocaine base, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 841(b)(1)(C), and one count of possession and use of a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 924(c), on January 25, 2018. 

On November 13, 2013, members of the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office and the New Orleans FBI’s Gang Task Force arrested TOSH TOUSSAINT when they found him in possession of approximately 10 grams of cocaine base (crack cocaine) and Taurus 9mm semi-automatic handgun.

The U.S. Attorney wishes to thank the hard work of the FBI’s New Orleans Gang Task Force and the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office in investigating this matter.  Assistant United States Attorney Myles Ranier is in charge of the prosecution.
