JEFFERSON DAVIS COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - Three Hattiesburg residents, including a Hattiesburg Public School District teacher are facing federal charges stemming from a multi-count indictment.

FBI, DEA, IRS, and MBN agents arrested Fredrick Booth, Chris Booth, and Shalonda Hill Wednesday afternoon after serving the high risk warrants.

Fredrick Booth and Chris Booth were arrested at a Bassfield residence, and Hill was taken into custody at a Hattiesburg location.

Agents recovered around 18 kilos of cocaine along with $1.1 million in cash from the Bassfield residence.

Both Fredrick and Hill made their appearance before Magistrate Judge Michael Parker Thursday morning in Federal Court.

Fredrick plead not guilty to the charges of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute controlled substance, conspiracy to commit money laundering, money laundering, and three counts of engaging in monetary transactions in property derived from unlawful activity.

Hill was given a $25,000 unsecured bond, and will make her initial appearance with proper legal counsel on Oct. 8, 2014 at 1:30 p.m.

Hill is charged with conspiracy to commit money laundering, money laundering and engaging in monetary transactions in property derived from unlawful activity. 

According to Hattiesburg Public School District Public Relations Director Jas N Smith the incident involving Shalonda Hill is a personnel matter. According to Smith, the district is cooperating with the agencies involved, and that Hill has been placed on administrative leave until the outcome of the investigation is known.

Smith did confirm that Hill was a third grade teacher in the Hattiesburg District at Rowan Elementary School.

Chris Booth will make his initial appearance in the Northern Federal Court District at some point today. Copyright 2014 WDAM. All rights reserved.
