The Bossier/Webster District Attorney's Office presented a check to the bossier Sheriff's Office.

It was handed over Thursday in the amount of $15,962.57 as part of an asset forfeiture allocation in multiple drug and other investigations.

Assistant District Attorney, Charles Jacobs, gave the money to Bossier Sheriff, Julian Whittington.

The funds represent vehicles, other property, monies and bank accounts that were seized in 23 different cases, primarily narcotics.

Sheriff Whittington and Bossier City Police Chief, Shane McWilliams, joined forces in October 2012 to develop the Bossier Combined Narcotics Task Force to combat illegal drug activity all throughout Bossier Parish.

"Our combined narcotics team does an outstanding job in keeping illegal drugs off of the streets of Bossier Parish," said Sheriff Whittington. "These funds presented by the DA's Office represent a lot of hard work by our team and will help with our continued fight against illegal drug and criminal activity."
