Pineville men arrested for illegal hunt

Two Pineville men were arrested last month for hunting and drug violations near the Camp Beauregard Wildlife Management Area, according to a release from the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries.

John D. Youngblood, 42, and Jeffrey A. Miles, 37, were arrested after enforcement division agents from the department set up a deer decoy after receiving complaints that Youngblood and Miles were hunting deer at night. After shooting at the decoy, the two fled and were chased by agents.

Agents captured Youngblood after they found him hiding nearby. Miles escaped, but was later arrested by the Pineville Police Department.

Wildlife agents seized a .17 caliber rifle and a .22 magnum rifle, each with a light attached to the gun. Agents also seized a freshly killed buck deer, a cooler that contained half of another deer and a Schedule II controlled dangerous substance (CDS).

Both men were booked for possession with intent to distribute a Schedule II CDS, illegally carrying of weapons with drugs, obstruction of justice, two counts of taking deer during illegal hours with artificial light, possession of an illegally taken deer, two counts of hunting from a moving vehicle, failure to maintain sex identification, field possession of deer meat without a tag, failure to abide by deer-tagging regulations, two counts of hunting deer with an illegal weapon, two counts of taking deer from a public road, illegal possession of drug paraphernalia, flight from an officer and hunting without a resident big game license.

In addition, Miles was booked for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and hunting without a resident license. Youngblood also was booked for discharging a firearm from a public road.
