UPDATE: Dubois transferred to Jeff Davis parish jail

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - UPDATE: We first told you about the arrest of Mike Dubois in Vermillion parish on Tuesday, November 10. Over this past weekend, Dubois was transferred to the Jeff Davis parish jail because of a probation violation after being arrested in Basile.

BASILE, LA (KPLC) - Mike Dubois, the brother of victim number four Whitnei Dubois, has been the unofficial spokesperson for the Jeff Davis Eight often times very critical of the investigation.

"This is larger than the Jeff Davis Parish or the Jennings Police Department can handle and it's obvious that this is still going on today and I believe we will have still more murders yet to come because I think it's bigger than they are," said Dubois.

Dubois has been fearless in his search for answers into the death of his sister Whitnei and the 7 other women, even putting himself out there on the streets where many believe the answers lie. During several of our interviews with him, Dubois admitted to having a drug problem years ago, but says he's been clean for quite some time.

This Saturday, acting on an anonymous tip, Basile Police pulled Dubois over on a traffic stop for suspicion of drug trafficking. Dubois voluntarily let them search his car, where officials say they found enough prescription drug evidence to charge him with doctor shopping.

7 News obtained the book-in log from Basile Police, which also includes charges of possession with intent to distribute schedule two and schedule four narcotics and introduction of contraband into a penal institution - after officials say they found more prescription pain drugs on him after booking him in.

However sources close to Dubois, who have talked with him since his arrest, say he has proof that these are valid prescriptions.

Meanwhile Dubois was transferred Tuesday morning to the Evangeline Parish Jail for his 72 hour hearing where bond was set at 25-thousand dollars. We're told he's in the process of trying to bond out.
