Warner Woman Arrested for Making False Statements and Helping a Fugitive Avoid Apprehension


           CONCORD – Heather Akins, 30, of Warner, was arrested today for making efforts to prevent the United States Marshals Service from apprehending a fugitive. 

           On July 19, 2021, a federal grand jury indicted Akins on one count of making a false statement to a federal agent and one count of accessory after the fact.  The indictment charges that Akins made a materially false statement about the whereabouts of a fugitive and assisted the fugitive to hinder the efforts of the U.S. Marshals to apprehend the fugitive.  

           Akins appeared for a video arraignment and was released pending trial.

           This matter was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service with assistance from the Warner Police Department.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Charles L. Rombeau.

           The charges in the indictment are only allegations.  The defendant is presumed to be innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
