A Larose man arrested 2 weeks ago for drug-related offenses has been arrested again, now facing more drug charges.

Reggie Estay, 46, of Larose, was arrested by agents on November 9 after attempting to conceal methamphetamine inside a loaf of bread.

At around 3 p.m. on November 22, agents conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle on La. Highway 308 in Lockport.

Agents identified the driver as Reese Gravois, 62, of Cut Off, and the passenger as Estay.
