Owner of Posh Pet Palace arrested on attempted rape charge

Reece Avants, owner of Posh Pet Palace in Port Allen, was arrested on April 8, 2022 on attempted first-degree rape and additional charges. Bond was set on April 11, 2022 for $350,000 and a protective order issued to stay away from the 15-yr-old victim.

Sources tell Unfiltered with Kiran that Avants, 36, of Addis, is accused of an incident at Posh Pet Palace with a female teenager. Sources have also said since his arrest, several other teens have come forward alleging sexual misconduct. The West Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office is further investigating.

Avants allegedly inappropriately touched a juvenile and then backed her into a room at Posh Pet Palace on April 3, 2022.

Along with attempted first-degree rape, Avants is charged with indecent behavior with a juvenile & false imprisonment.  

Due to the case involving a juvenile, details are limited.

Unfiltered with Kiran did call Posh Pet Palace asking for Avants’ wife or a manager for comment, but neither were available.
