MANDEVILLE, La. (AP) - Authorities say a Mandeville Police detective whose adult children were allegedly growing marijuana in his home has been disciplined but will not face criminal charges.
Mandeville Police and St. Tammany Parish deputies raided the home of Leonard Pfleider on Oct. 8 after learning that his child and stepchildren were allegedly growing pot in the home. Police say
less than a dozen plants were found in the house and the three children were booked with a variety of drug-related offenses.
Capt. Ron Ruple said Pfleider was not booked because authorities could not determine whether he knew the plants were being grown on the house's upper floor.
Ruple said Pfleider has been disciplined but declined to say how because it is a personnel matter.
