Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana – Louisiana couple arrested on multiple narcotics charges during joint investigation in Terrebonne Parish.
Terrebonne Parish Sheriff Tim Soignet confirmed the arrest of a couple from Houma, Louisiana on numerous drug-related offenses. The arrests were a result of a collaborative investigation undertaken by the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Narcotics Division, TPSO Criminal Intelligence Unit (CIU), Houma Police Narcotics Division, and Louisiana State Police CID Region 2.
Kerry Alvis Jr., aged 46, and Regina Marie Lecompte, aged 41, were found and apprehended for several alleged narcotics violations as per the findings of the investigation.
In August 2023, law enforcement started to receive undisclosed tips about unlawful drug-related operations at a particular house on the 2100 block of Coteau Road, where Alvis and Lecompte were pointed out as suspects.
Authorities initiated an investigation into Alvis, which ultimately led to them confronting him during a traffic stop on Coteau Road on a Monday evening, just after 7:30 p.m. Upon inspection during the traffic stop, Alvis was discovered to have illegal drugs in his possession and was promptly taken into custody.
As the investigation progressed, the evidence gathered prompted the authorities to secure a search warrant for Alvis’ home. During this investigation, they managed to link Lecompte to the case and discovered that the duo lived in the same house with at least one minor child.
As the agents were surrounding the home, Lecompte arrived at the scene in an erratic manner, allegedly nearly hitting an agent with her vehicle. Subsequently, she was extracted from the vehicle and arrested.
After the search was finalized, authorities found over 260 grams of assumed methamphetamines, around 19 grams of heroin, almost 12 grams of crack cocaine, and over 85 grams of marijuana. According to authorities, this, together with various items related to drug trafficking, suggests the house was being used for the manufacture and distribution of illegal substances.
Kerry Alvis Jr. was arrested on allegations of Possession with the Intent to Distribute CDS I, Possession with the Intent to Distribute Heroin, Possession with the Intent to Distribute CDS II (2 counts), and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. Alvis was jailed at the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Complex, where he remains on a 200,000 total bond by local judges.
Regina Marie Lecompte has been charged with Possession with the Intent to Distribute CDS I, Possession with the Intent to Distribute Heroin, Possession with the Intent to Distribute CDS II (2 counts), Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Aggravated Assault of a Police Officer. Lecompte was jailed at the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Complex, where she remains on a 50,000 total bond by local judges.
