Pierre Part Man Arrested After Search Warrant Executed---Thousands of Prescription Pills Seized - Thursday, January 13, 2011

A search warrant was executed by Assumption Parish Sheriff's Narcotics Task Force with the assistance of Narcotics Agents from Louisiana State Police last night at a residence located at 316 South Bay Road, Pierre Part, Louisiana which yielded thousands of prescription pills, cash (approximately $1,800.00) and various records and documentation supporting the shopping and obtaining of various prescriptions from various pharmacies in the Houston, Texas area. Also included in this search was a vehicle owned by the resident. A street value and exact count of the number of pills by type is not available as of the time of this release as Narcotics Agents are still conducting an inventory. This search warrant was obtained after receiving numerous complaints from residents of Pierre Part concerning Roy Metrejean, Jr. of 316 South Bay Road, Pierre Part selling prescription pain pills. The investigation revealed that Metrejean would go to Texas to obtain numerous prescription pain pills and sell them from his residence and vehicle upon return to Pierre Part. Metrejean was also recently arrested on December 6, 2010 by Broussard Police Department after a traffic stop on highway 90 where he was charged with Possession of Schedule II CDS and $15,900 was seized from his vehicle.

Roy Metrejean Jr. was arrested last night and charged with Possession with intent to distribute Schedule III CDS (hydrocodone) and Possession with intent to distribute Schedule IV CDS (soma and xanax). He is currently being held in the Assumption Parish Detention Center. A Bond has not been set as of the time of this release.

This investigation is ongoing and furthers arrests and/or charges are pending at this time.
