THIBODAUX, LA (WVUE) -

A Lafourche woman was arrested Thursday after investigators said she falsely reported a homicide and then drove off in a deputy’s patrol car, according to Lafourch Sheriff Craig Webre.

Loralyn Boudreaux, age 34, of Thibodaux, faces 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

On Thursday at around 5:15 p.m., deputies were responding to an unrelated complaint in the 100 block of Waverly Road when a woman approached them, frantically screaming about a homicide that had allegedly just taken place. The woman said the suspect and victim were still inside the home. When deputies went inside to investigate, Bourdreaux slipped into the patrol car and sped away.

Deputies tracked the car to a home on Asphondel Drive about 1.5 miles away. When they arrived they found Boudreaux involved in a verbal altercation with a man outside. When they tried to take her into custody, Boudreaux began resisting, and at one point, she struck a deputy in the face with her fist, Webre said.

At the Waverly Road home deputies said they found 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 guns.

Boudreaux was booked into the Lafourche Parish Detention Center. Her bond was set at $32,000.
