Nashua woman may face life in prison

NASHUA – Kiana Moudarri, 23, of 48 Royal Crest Drive, Apt. 6, Nashua, faces up to life in prison and a $500,000 fine after her arrest on crack cocaine charges.

According to Nashua Police Department accounts, officers on Oct. 6 reported to the suspect’s address to serve her court issued paperwork.

While attempting to serve the paperwork, officers allegedly discovered that Moudarri had discarded crack cocaine and other items indicative of illegal narcotics distribution from her window. As a result of this investigation, Moudarri was placed under arrest. The discarded crack cocaine was collected and, officers allege, its total weight exceeded 5 ounces.

Members of the Nashua Police Department’s Narcotics Intelligence Division furthered the investigation, obtaining a search warrant for the residence. During their search, detectives allegedly located more crack cocaine, as well as a large sum of money. Based on their investigation, detectives believed the cash consisted of proceeds made from the illegal distribution of narcotics, so it was seized. Detectives also found evidence leading them to believe that Moudarri had flushed an unknown amount of crack cocaine down the toilet.

Based on a previous drug related conviction, as well as the alleged weight of the crack cocaine that was allegedly located, the special felony that Moudarri has been charged with is punishable by a maximum term of life imprisonment, as well as a maximum fine of $500,000.

Moudarri was released, pending her Oct. 24 arraignment at Hillsborough County Superior Court-South.

The specific charges against Moudarri are possession of a controlled drug with intent to distribute, crack cocaine, second offense, special felony and falsifying physical evidence, Class B felony.
