BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – On Friday, Oct. 13, the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office received a tip about about a possible drug dealer coming into the parish.

That led to deputies searching I-10 East for a vehicle driven by Seth Boese, 22, of Sulphur. Boese had an “arrest warrant for distribution of schedule IV narcotics,” according to the affidavit.

Deputies observed the vehicle in the vicinity of the I-10/I-12 split and initiated a traffic stop. The driver of the vehicle was searched and eventually released after questioning. Boese was a passenger in the vehicle.

“He was found to have a vacuum-sealed bag containing 213 dosage units of Alprazolam sticking out of his underwear,” arrest documents said. Nothing illegal was found during a search of the vehicle, according to EBRSO.

The Sulphur man was eventually strip-searched at the Narcotics Office. EBRSO said that he handed over seven pressed fentanyl pills. Boese admitted to being the owner of the pills and stated that “he came to Baton Rouge to sell them,” according to the affidavit.

He was booked and charged with possession with the intent to distribute Schedule IV narcotics and possession of Schedule II narcotics.
