A Louisiana man camping on Lake Ouachita was arrested on multiple felony charges late Friday after numerous drugs, including psychedelic mushrooms and LSD-laced dog biscuits, were allegedly found in his possession.
Quincy Edward Boudreaux, 25, who lists a Monroe, La., address, was taken into custody shortly before midnight at Lake Ouachita State Park and charged with possession of a controlled substance with purpose to deliver, punishable by up to 20 years in prison, three counts of possession of a controlled substance, punishable by up to 10 years, one count of possession of meth, punishable by up to six years, and two misdemeanor counts of possession of a controlled substance and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia, each punishable by up to one year in jail.
Boudreaux was being held on $21,000 bond and was set to appear Monday in Garland County District Court.
Also arrested were Chace Cameron Leger, 22, who lists a West Jordan, Utah, address and Gavin Hall Wade, 23, address unknown, who were each charged with misdemeanor counts of possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Wade was released on $2,000 bond while Leger remained in custody in lieu of $1,000 bond.
According to the probable cause affidavit, around 11:30 p.m. Friday, Officers Robert Hauger and Michael Boyes with Arkansas State Parks were on foot patrol in Camp Area A at the state park when they detected an odor of marijuana coming from campsite 77, which was found to be occupied by three men, identified as Boudreaux, Leger and Wade.
The three men were sitting at the picnic table and Leger was allegedly attempting to roll marijuana into a cigar casing. The officers identified themselves and had the three men put their hands on the table. Boyes noted there was a glass jar containing suspected marijuana and a multicolored backpack on the table.
Also inside the jar was a baggie contained 70 "assorted colored pills," that later tested positive for MDMA or ecstasy. Also found was a baggie with mushrooms that Boudreaux allegedly identified as "psychedelic mushrooms," and a vial with crystal rocks that later tested positive for meth.
Inside a Crown Royal bag, the officers found another glass jar containing four aluminum foil packs that contained "halves of dog biscuits that tested positive for LSD." Another jar was found that contained assorted pills, including amphetamines, Clonazepam, Xanax, Alprazolam, along with two scales, a vape cartridge and vape pen, which Boudreaux reportedly admitted contained THC, and a marijuana grinder.
Asked if there was any more contraband in the vehicle or in their tent, Wade allegedly admitted a glass smoking pipe, metal grinder and rolling papers were in a bag in the tent, which were also recovered.
