Soileau also had several outstanding bench warrants for his arrest, related to previous outstanding cases, according to the Opelousas Police Department (OPD). He’s been arrested five prior times since 2019 for narcotics-related charges as well.

On April 18, 2022, OPD officers in the Special Operations Division served a search warrant that was obtained following up on information received about narcotics trafficking occurring in the area of the 1300 block of South Court St. in Opelousas.

Officers had been surveilling the area for several weeks prior to the search, during which time they made several arrests for narcotics violations of people that were all frequenting the same house in that block. After gathering further information, officers obtained a search warrant on a house where they suspected narcotics trafficking was happening.

The warrant led to the arrest of Soileau.
