WACO (September 6, 2012)-A Waco man was arrested Thursday after police and drug enforcement agents raided two businesses in Waco.

Nabil A. Hakim, 63, remains in the McLennan County Jail and has been charged with one count of money laundering, two counts of falsifying a government document, and one count of theft under $20,000. His bonds totaled at $105,000.

Hakim was arrested Thursday morning when agents raided two convenience stores, one at 18th and Herring and one at 19th and Alexander.

McGregor Lt. Bubba Collier said Hakim was arrested on three outstanding warrants and on a warrantless arrest for fencing stolen goods.

The raids, led by police officers from McGregor, are part of an ongoing investigation into drug trafficking and sale of stolen goods.

Officers simultaneously served warrants at Hanna's, on 19th and Alexander and at John's at 18th and Herring.

On June 13, Bobby Ray Dixon, 42, was arrested on money laundering, conspiracy and possession of marijuana charges.

McGregor, assisted by the Woodway police SWAT, agents from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the Precinct 5 Constable raided a house at 2300 Kirby Lee Lane, just inside the Waco city limits, armed with a search warrant.

A McGregor police officer said Wednesday agents recovered a small amount of marijuana and seized two vehicles and a portable car wash unit.

McGregor police say additional arrests are pending.
