Slidell: Two Arrested for Manufacturing Counterfeit Currency

Kenyatta Meads (44) and Lynn Pommier (46) were arrested by STPSO detectives on October 2, 2019 following the execution of a search warrant at a residence on Ninth Street in Slidell. Detectives found counterfeit money, as well as computers and other equipment utilized to manufacture the fake money. The two were booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail on charges stemming from the counterfeit money as well as in connection with narcotics and related paraphernalia found at the residence. Meads bonded out on October 25, 2019.

On November 7, 2019, STPSO detectives were executing another unrelated search warrant at a home on South Pontchartrain Drive in Lacombe, where Meads had been staying after he was released on bond from the October 2, 2019 arrest. Detectives uncovered more counterfeit currency as well as additional computers and equipment utilized to manufacture the fake money. Meads was arrested once again and booked back into the St. Tammany Parish Jail.
Ultimately, Meads will be arrested on a total of 191 counts of Monetary Instrument Abuse, one count of   Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, two counts of Possession of Schedule II Narcotics (Methamphetamine and Fentanyl) and one count of Possession of Schedule I Narcotics (Heroin).

Pommier was arrested for one count each of Monetary Instrument Abuse, Possession of Schedule I (Methamphetamine) and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

This is an ongoing investigation and additional charges and/or arrests are possible.
