The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Task Force, in conjunction with the United States Postal Inspectors, Drug Enforcement Administration and Homeland Security, recently conducted a search warrant at 68249 Taulla Drive in Covington.
The target of the investigation, Alan Guichet (DOB 12-20-53), had been suspected of receiving steroids from outside the United States. United States Postal Inspectors, along with agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration, intercepted a package destined for Guichet at the above listed address and determined that it contained approximately 500ml of illegal steroids.
Upon discovering the contents of the package, the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office obtained a state search warrant for the residence. That search, conducted Monday evening, revealed an additional 500ml of illegal steroids and numerous vials of Human Growth Hormones.
Guichet was arrested Monday by the STPSO narcotics division for L.R.S. 40:968(C) – possession of Schedule III CDS (Steroids) and booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail.
Chief Deputy Brian Trainor and DEA Special Agent in Charge Keith Brown praised the work of the partnership in preventing these illegal steroids from making it to the streets of St. Tammany Parish.
“We are thankful that, through the hard work of our narcotics task force and our various federal partners, another shipment of illegal narcotics was prevented from reaching the streets of St. Tammany Parish. We will continue to work with our partners to identify and stop those individuals who choose to bring illegal narcotics into our country and more importantly our parish,” Chief Deputy Trainor said.
“Through our partnership with local and federal law enforcement, we are making progress in our efforts to combat the drug trafficking in our communities. We will continue to work together and pursue those who threaten our communities through the smuggling and distribution of illegal drugs,” stated Special Agent in Charge Brown.
