Stephen Schule and Leila Robinson.

St. Bernard Sheriff James Pohlmann said a Violet couple was arrested for distribution of methamphetamine after Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Agents were able to make purchases from each of them on separate occasions during an undercover investigation. This is the second St. Bernard Parish couple arrested for dealing the controlled substance in the past month, the Sheriff said.

On Dec. 18, agents assigned to the Special Investigations Division executed arrest warrants for Stephen Schule, 39, and Leila Robinson, 34, at their home in the 2300 block of Riverbend Drive.

During the execution of the arrest warrants, agents recovered methamphetamine, dextroamphetamine, heroin, Alprazolam, Oxycodone, and drug paraphernalia, including a glass smoking device, Sheriff Pohlmann said.

In addition to the distribution of methamphetamine charges, Schule was booked with possession of methamphetamine, possession of heroin, possession of Alprazolam, possession of dextroamphetamine, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Schule also was booked on a warrant for restitution out of the Plaquemines Parish Sheriff’s Office.

In addition to the distribution of methamphetamine charges, Robinson was booked with possession of Oxycodone and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Schule is being held in St. Bernard Parish Prison on a $125,000 bond; Robinson was released from the prison Dec. 28 on a $75,000 bond.
