Pineville neighbors complaints lead to several narcotics arrests

In early January 2023, the Rapides Area Drug Enforcement (RADE) Unit began receiving several community complaints in reference to possible narcotic activity at an address on Lakeshore Drive in Pineville.  These complaints indicated the owner of the residence, identified as Raegan Alan Boone, 63 of Pineville, was allowing individuals addicted to illegal narcotics to live in his house. RADE Agents, working with Detectives from the Pineville Police Department, began their investigation which resulted in obtaining a search warrant for 1010 Lakeshore Drive. 


Due to information that a wanted fugitive was living in the house, RADE Agents requested the assistance of the Rapides Parish SWAT to execute the search warrant. 


On January 31st, 2023, RPSO SWAT executed the search warrant and secured the residence with everyone inside. RADE Agents, Agents from the Louisiana Department of Corrections-Probation and Parole, and Pineville PD Detectives conducted the search.  Located inside were Boone, Kandice Lee Trichel, Kentrell Chaney, and Garett Thomas Laeger.  Boone was found to be in possession of a small amount of methamphetamine, amphetamine pills and a firearm.  Boone is a convicted felon and is not permitted to possess a firearm.  Trichel was found to be in possession of a small amount of methamphetamine, marijuana, fentanyl and three active contempt of court warrants.  Chaney was also found to be in possession of methamphetamine, marijuana, and fentanyl.  He too had two active contempt of court warrants and was also booked for a parole violation and a probation violation.  Laeger was booked for various parole violations


Boone remains in jail being held on a $15,000 bond.  Trichel remains in jail being held on various narcotics charges and parole violations.  Chaney remains in jail being held on various narcotics charges and  parole / probation violations.  Laeger remains in jail on a parole violation.
