A Thibodaux man was arrested on fraud and drug charges, according to a report from the Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s office.

Robert Rouse, was arrested Monday morning at a bank in the 200 Block of North Canal Boulevard as he was attempting to cash a check for $960.

Bank staff became suspicious of several inconsistencies, prompting them to contact the account holder a family member of Robert Rouse.

The person contacted said they did write the check.

When Rouse was taken into custody, police recovered what they suspected to be oxycodone, valium, and xanax in a silver metal pill bottle in Rouse’s possession.

Rouse was taken to the Lafourche Parish Detention Center where he is being held on $25,000 bond.
