BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -

5 Bossier City men are behind bars, charged with racketeering following a joint undercover narcotics operation that spanned both sides of the Red River. 

38-year-old Adam Ramadan is facing one charge of racketeering. 26-year-old Khalil Shawakha, 27-year-old Mohammed Shawakha, 36-year-old Shareef Shawakha and 33-year-old Rami Shawakha are all charged with racketeering and are being held as in-state fugitives. 

According to a statement released Thursday afternoon by the Shreveport Police Department on behalf of the Caddo-Shreveport Narcotics Unit and the Bossier Parish-Bossier City Narcotics Unit, the operation, dubbed Operation Sneaky Shorts, stemmed from an ongoing investigation into alleged retail thefts and the sale of synthetic marijuana.

The operation was coordinated and executed by agents from both units and executed over the past few days.

Agents executed four out of a total of eight search warrants at locations inside Bossier City. KSLA News 12 has learned that one of those raids took place at a home in the 3300 block of Jefferson Place in Bossier City's Northgate neighborhood on Tuesday, August 6.

The other four search warrants were executed at locations inside Shreveport, specifically including a strip mall located in the 4100 block of Hearne Avenue in Shreveport.

In all, authorities say their combined efforts yielded a total seizure of $347,638.00 in U.S. currency, $20,000.00 in gold, two firearms and 273 grams of synthetic marijuana. 

Authorities say the investigation continues and more arrests are anticipated.
