LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — A Lexington man who police describe as international money launderer working for drug trafficking organizations has been indicted in federal court.
Authorities say 34-year-old Ramie Dean Douglas is charged with conspiracy to launder money.
Court records indicate Douglas came under investigation by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. Acting on that information, a local undercover investigator called and texted Douglas to arrange several transactions.
Douglas faces up to 20 years in prison if he is convicted on all charges.
He is scheduled to appear again Tuesday in federal court.
