Tulane Frat House Bust Yields $10k in Drugs


A stash of psychedelics that was hoarded at a Tulane frat house is now in the hands of authorities. State Police seized $10,000 worth of drugs from the Kappa Sigma fraternity house at 627 Broadway St. Friday after a pair of students from the Uptown university accepted a fresh shipment from the fuzz. Jules Staib and Wyatt Silverman, both 19 and Tulane students, were arrested after they accepted a package containing 107 grams of ecstasy (MDMA) from undercover state police officers.

 

The other drugs seized included 57 dosage units of LSD, 69 grams of psilocybin Mushrooms, 48 grams of opium, 22 grams of marijuana, .80 grams of Cocaine and .91 grams of DMT.

 

Police got hip to the drugs through the package containing the ecstasy, which was shipped by mail. The U.S. Postal Service and the Department of Homeland Security intercepted the package, and called in state police to pose for the delivery.

 

State Police listed Staib as a resident of Baton Rouge, and Silverman as a resident of Pittsburgh, Penn. The pair were booked into Orleans Parish Prison on charges of possession of Illegal Narcotics Schedule I and Schedule II and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

 

The frat house bust was investigated as part of a federal program known as the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas Task Force, which provides coordination and technology to allow law enforcement agencies to zero in on high drug areas.
