After receiving anonymous complaints of narcotics activity at the home, STPSO detectives with the Proactive Enforcement Unit responded to a Mandeville-area residence Saturday (September 23, 2023) and made contact with the couple who lived there, 37 year-old Amanda Flocke and 43 year-old John Joiner.
While investigating the complaint the detectives developed probable cause to search the residence. During the search, detectives recovered 2,745 counterfeit oxycodone tablets, which were found to contain fentanyl, approximately 29.1 grams of methamphetamine, 15 ecstasy pills, 170 hydrocodone pills, a small amount of marijuana, two dosage units of male enhancement pills, a pill press and $1,069.
“Keeping drugs off our streets and out of our neighborhoods is a cooperative effort between law enforcement and our residents,” Sheriff Randy Smith said. “If you know of people selling drugs in our community, please do not hesitate to report it. We will investigate.”
Anyone with information about narcotics, or other crimes, can submit an anonymous tip utilizing the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office website (www.stpso.com), or by calling the narcotics tip line (1-888-GO-2-JAIL).
