CHALMETTE, LA (WVUE) -

A federal investigation is underway at Wilkinson Family Pharmacy in what authorities call a prescription drug investigation.

Agents and St. Bernard Parish sheriff's deputies executed seizure warrants on Wednesday around 9 a.m., according to a DEA spokesperson.

The DEA said that's normal protocol because the SBPSO is part of a joint federal and local task force and usually when federal raids are conducted, local partners in communities are notified and enlisted to help.

A spokeswoman for the sheriff’s office said they would not have any comment because it remains an ongoing federal investigation.

The pharmacy is located at 3001 Paris Rd.

All indictments are under seal, according to the DEA.
