Heroin and meth distribution is growing in Acadia Parish, Sheriff KP Gibson says. 

"We have been working every corner of the parish fighting the illegal drug industry. We continue to see a growth with Methamphetamines as well as Heroin. Synthetic Marijuana also remains strong in the area," Gibson says. "Our personnel are committed to this battle and I am proud of their efforts. This is a battle that will never end. However we must continue the fight for the safety of our citizens and our parish."

Among the recent arrests are: 

  • Sonja Fontenot, 52, of Rayne, booked with possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, possession of adderall, percocet, hydrocodone, oxycodone and possession of drug money.
  • April Oschman, 32, of Morse, booked with possession with intent to distribute heroin and methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia. 
  • Blase Meche, 21, of Church Point, booked with possession with intent to distribute marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and drug money.
  • Frank Leopaul, 22, of Rayne, booked with possession with intent to distribute marijuana and possession of drug money.
  • Ashley Greene, 42, of Morse, booked with possession with intent to distribute heroin, meth and possession of drug paraphernalia. Greene also was arrested in June, accused of dealing meth out of the Ashley Pet Store in Morse. Another warrant was issued for him after deputies served a search warrant on a home in Morse; Oschman was arrested during that bust.
