Life Saving Award Given to Local Hunt County Hero

Hunt County resident Brian Sims was recognized this week with the FEC Life Saving Award. This award is given to individuals who’s actions saved the life of another human being. On June 8th, 2018 Brian was working near Lake Tawakoni when he noticed a woman struggling to reach her raft in the water. Mr. Sims immediately realized she was in real danger and didn’t hesitate to jump into action. When he reached her, she was unresponsive. Although he was exhausted, Brian wasn’t giving up and finally made it back to shore with the woman. A short time later, first responders made scene and took over life-saving measures. Miraculously, and no doubt thanks to Brian Sims’ bravery, the woman survived and later reached out over social media in hopes of finding her hero. She and Brian still communicate with each other to this day. You can watch Brian’s account of what happened that day in the link we have provided above.

Louisiana State Police Arrest SNAP Benefit Fraud Person

March 20, 2019

Alexandria Business Owner Arrested for Money Laundering and Other Charges

Alexandria – On Thursday, March 14, 2019, investigators from the Louisiana State Police Bureau of Investigations Insurance Fraud Unit/Alexandria Field Office, arrested Mohammad Abudayeh (O/M 25 yoa) of Alexandria, LA. Abudayeh was arrested for unauthorized use of supplemental nutrition assistance program (SNAP) benefits, computer fraud, money laundering, racketeering, and bank fraud.

In June 2018, LSP’s Insurance Fraud Unit began an investigation pertaining to a local business/business owner (Food Mart, 2512 3rd Street, Alexandria) who was buying SNAP benefits (foods stamps) from local individuals. During the investigation, a person of interest (Abudayeh), was identified. From October 2017 to March 2019, Abudeyeh conducted over $1.2 million in Louisiana Purchase EBT (electronic benefit transfer) transactions, which was well above the amount a store that size should be conducting.

As a result of the investigation and information obtained, a search warrant was issued for Abudayeh’s business location and residence. Investigators seized approximately three hundred forty thousand dollars ($340,000.00) in U.S. currency and 11 cases of alcohol, at his residence, that was discovered to be stolen from a local grocery store. Following the search warrants, Abudayeh, who was already being held at the Rapides Parish Jail on an unrelated charge, was charged with these additional offenses.

Agencies involved in this investigation/arrest are Louisiana State Police, Louisiana Department of Child and Family Services, Louisiana Alcohol and Tobacco Control (ATC), Alexandria Police Department, Louisiana Department of Health, and the Alexandria City Fire Marshal’s Office.

The Louisiana State Police online reporting system is also available to the public through a convenient and secure reporting form that is submitted to the appropriate investigators. Citizens can access the form by visiting http://lsp.org/ and clicking the Suspicious Activity link.
