The St. Bernard Parish Sheriff’s Office continues to make large-scale marijuana arrests.

Police say they seized nine pounds of marijuana worth $65,000 and five guns in three cases April 2-11.

On April 2, Drew Irby, 26, was arrested on the charge of possession with the intent to distribute marijuana, 95 Xanax tablets and 13 hydrocodone tablets

After further investigation, Irby’s father, Tyrone Irby, 56, was arrested for possession with intent to distribute the marijuana.

In the next case, Brett Scipio, 30, a New Orleans area singer known by the name Weedy, was one of five people arrested April 3 in one operation involving five pounds of marijuana. Police say a handgun was found in a vehicle Scipio and another man were stopped in with Scipio’s two children inside. Another handgun was in the home of a third man where the marijuana was delivered.

“We are recently finding larger amounts of marijuana and in a higher potency than we have normally seen,’’ Sheriff James Pohlmann said. “… And we are seeing that the larger the amount of marijuana, the more we are seeing guns in the arrests.”

Kevin Miller, 32 of Gretna and Levi Arnold, 26, of Chalmette were booked with possession with intent to distribute the five pounds. They were where the marijuana had been delivered.

The other two suspects, Robert Williams, 30, and Naticole January, 27, live together in Chalmette and were booked with the same charge of possession with intent to distribute marijuana.

“We identified and dismantled a drug-trafficking organization consisting of the five individuals,’’ said Maj. Chad Clark, head of the Special Investigations Division. “…This was the type of organization that could have disrupted this entire community. Now it is up to the judges and prosecutors to put them in prison.’’

Finally on April 11, Martin Robin III, 33, was booked with possession with intent to distribute 2.6 pounds of marijuana worth $5,500 and possession of drug paraphernalia.
