On August 6, Bertrand Meche, 36, of Breaux Bridge was arrested and booked into the St. Martin Parish jail on 22 counts of taking or selling commercial fish without a commercial fisherman’s license, taking commercial fish without a gear license and failing to maintain records. He was also cited for various probation violations.
An investigation was initiated by Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Division Sgt. James D. Rhodes after he saw Meche selling crawfish. A subsequent check of the wholesale dealer who purchased the crawfish revealed that records of the transactions were not being properly kept or filed with LDWF. It was then discovered that Meche was operating without commercial licenses, and that he was also violating several terms of probation from a previous criminal conviction. Warrants were then obtained and served.

The penalty for each of these violations is a fine of up to $500, jail for not more than 90 days, or both, plus court costs.

Assisting in this case was Probation and Parole Officer Brudley R. Kibodeaux II.
