NOPD and JPSO make Narcotics Arrest in Joint Operation

NEW ORLEANS – In a joint operation, the Second District Task Force A and the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office Narcotics units served double search warrants that led to the arrest of one suspect and the seizure of illegal drugs.

After an in-depth investigation, officers served the warrants at a location in the 3500 block of Tonti Street and the 3200 block of General Taylor Street on October 19, 2019. Officers confiscated several types of drugs including marijuana, ecstasy, and cocaine, as well as more than $3,000 in cash.

Officers arrested Coral Leffew (pictured, DOB: 06/27/96) for possession with intent to distribute the various drugs.  An arrest warrant was issued for Leffew’s roommate, Nhi Ngyyen (pictured, DOB:09/01/89) who was not at home when officers arrived.
