An alleged drug dealer who reported Sunday that two people robbed him was arrested on warrants and drug charges after his home was searched, the Lafourche Sheriff’s Office said.
Coby Thibodeaux, 21, of 462 St. Ann St., Raceland, reported being robbed at gunpoint by Larry Dupuy, 24, and Valeria Chiasson, 21, both of 285 Coteau Lane, Thibodaux, deputies said.
Investigators said they learned the two picked up Thibodeaux at his home and later physically attacked him and demanded money because they believe he is a drug dealer. Chiasson also allegedly pointed a firearm at Thibodeaux before he gave them his wallet and escaped from the vehicle.
Lafourche Parish Drug Task Force agents recovered about 9.7 grams of marijuana, 0.6 grams of methamphetamine and $1,840 in cash at Dupuy and Chiasson’s residence, they said. Dupuy and Chiasson were placed under arrest on armed robbery charges and were booked into the Lafourche Parish jail on $100,000 bonds. Chiasson is also being held for Louisiana Probation and Parole.
Meanwhile, narcotics agents learned Thibodeaux had two active warrants for his arrest for distribution of methamphetamine, the Sheriff’s Office said.
After obtaining a search warrant for his residence, agents recovered about 0.2 grams of methamphetamine, multiple marijuana cigars, several types of legend drugs, a handgun and various drug paraphernalia, they said.
Thibodeaux was arrested and transported to the jail where he was booked on the warrants and charges of possession with the intent to distribute marijuana and methamphetamine, illegal possession of a weapon in the presence of a controlled dangerous substance and possession of marijuana, methamphetamine, legend drugs and drug paraphernalia. He is being held at the jail on a $101,000 bond.
