LPSO’s investigation finds 2,000 pills pressed with Fentanyl

Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Agents have made an arrest in connection to alleged illegal drugs sold in the Holden area. The combined value of the drug bust is nearly $73,000, according to LPSO.

“Through our investigation, it was learned that a Holden resident was conducting illegal narcotics sales, which included fentanyl pressed pills, out of his home in the 35,000 stretch of Highway 1036,” said LPSO Sheriff Jason Ard.

Officials said in a news release, “When fentanyl is pressed into pills, the amount of fentanyl can vary from pill to pill. The amount in a single pill can be deadly for some.”

Colton Boudreaux has been charged in connection to the case with entering contraband, possession of schedule 1, possession of schedule 2, possession with intent to distribute schedule 1, 2, 3 & 4, possession of paraphernalia, and manufacturing/distribution of schedule 2. Boudreaux was already behind bars in Livingston Parish after the Louisiana Attorney General’s office got a successful plea earlier this week in connection to a shootout in Holden in 2021.
