Cenla Meth Dealers Arrested

Posted: Updated:

PINEVILLE, La. – A routine Cenla drug dealer and two area suppliers were arrested by Rapides Parish deputies after a recent meth bust.

On Oct. 19, detectives from the Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office Metro Division stopped a delivery the dealers arranged of nearly two ounces of crystal methamphetamine from Texas. 

Detectives arrested Richard Joseph Schweiger, 37, of 113 Jack Deville Rd. in Deville, in September for his fifth drug related offense since the first of the year. 

Detectives say they consider Schweiger a routine supplier of methamphetamine in the area. They opened another investigation because they expected him to resupply and sell methamphetamine again. 

According to reports, Schweiger and Jeremy Allinson, 32, of 5591 La. Hwy 107 in Pineville were dealing large quantities of methamphetamine and potentially using the same supplier in Texas. 

Detectives obtained a search warrant at the home of Jeremy and Amber Allinson.  According to reports, detectives arrested him in January on five drug counts and four more drug charges in September. 

Allinson was on probation, facing eight years at Hard Labor. Detectives maintained an investigation on Allinson since his release from jail in October.  The investigation connected Schweiger and Allinson to the Texas deal. 

Detectives determined Schweiger had traveled to Texas and was returning on Friday.  Detectives stopped Schweiger in a parking lot on La. Hwy 28 East in Pineville, and he was found in possession of glass methamphetamine valued at just over $5,000. Schweiger is currently being held in the Rapides Parish Jail on a $50,000 bond.

Detectives executed the warrant for Allinson on Friday night, locating just over an ounce and a half of glass methamphetamine, almost the amount recovered from Schweiger earlier in the evening. 

Marijuana, smoking pipes and plastic baggies were also recovered. Allinson was again charged with a probation violation. He is being held on a $15,250 bond.  Amber Allinson was released on a $10,000 bond.
