Two Arrested In Breaux Bridge For Ecstasy Distribution
ST. MARTINVILLE, La. (AP) — Authorities say two men have been arrested on drug distribution charges after they tried to pick a package containing hundreds of grams of ecstasy from a Breaux Bridge post office.
23-year-old Jermia Batiste, of Lafayette, and 21-year-old Tony Benoit, of Breaux Bridge, were booked Monday with possession with intent to distribute over 400 grams of M.D.M.A. Both men are being held on bonds of $500,000 each.
