Sheriff Craig Webre announced the arrest of Loralyn Boudreaux (age 34) of Thibodaux on Thursday, September 24. At around 5:15 p.m. on Thursday, deputies were responding to an unrelated complaint in the 100 block of Waverly Road in Thibodaux when a woman approached them, frantically screaming about a homicide that had allegedly just taken place. The woman also stated the suspect and victim were still inside the residence. Deputies immediately proceeded inside the residence but did not locate any other subjects. As the deputies went inside, the woman, later identified as Loralyn Boudreaux, slipped into the deputies’ patrol car and drove away from the location at a high rate of speed. Deputies tracked the vehicle to a residence on Asphondel Drive in Thibodaux approximately 1.5 miles from the Waverly Road residence. Upon arrival to Asphondel Drive, deputies discovered Boudreaux had abandoned the patrol car and was involved in a verbal altercation with a male subject outside the residence. While attempting to apprehend Boudreaux, she began resisting, and at one point, she struck a deputy in the face with her fist. She was eventually taken into custody.
Back at the Waverly Road residence, deputies noticed firearms and drug paraphernalia in plain view and obtained a search warrant to further investigate. During a subsequent search of the residence, deputies discovered a small bag containing suspected methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and several firearms.
Boudreaux was booked into the Lafourche Parish Detention Center on charges of Possession of Methamphetamine, Illegal Carrying of a Weapon in the Presence of a Controlled Dangerous Substance, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Felony Unauthorized Use of a Movable, Resisting an Officer with Force or Violence, and Reckless Operation. Her bond was set at $32,000.
