On Wednesday, deputies responded to the Raceland area where a stolen all-terrain vehicle was reportedly being driven southbound on the shoulder of LA Highway 1. Upon arrival to the area, deputies spotted the ATV and pulled into its path on the shoulder of the highway. The ATV driver, later identified as Paul Bourgeois (W/M, D.O.B. 05/03/94) of 569 Ayo Street in Raceland, accelerated and drove around the deputies unit and continued southbound on the shoulder of the highway. Deputies then began following the ATV, attempting to initiate a vehicle stop. Bourgeois continued driving the ATV southbound, and began traveling through yards of private property located along LA 1. He continued until he crashed and was ejected from the vehicle. Acadian Ambulance was called to the scene and eventually transported Bourgeois to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries. Deputies, meanwhile, confirmed the ATV had been reported stolen out of Terrebonne Parish. Deputies also located two firearms with ammunition and prescription medication, all of which was determined to be stolen, as well as drug paraphernalia at the scene. Following his treatment at the hospital, Bourgeois was transported to the Lafourche Parish Detention Center and booked with illegal possession of stolen things, flight from an officer, possession of hydrocodone, and possession of drug paraphernalia. He is being held in lieu of $18,000 bond as set by Judge Jerome J. Barbera III, and he is also being held for Terrebonne Parish.
On Thursday, agents with the Lafourche Parish Drug Task Force and the Louisiana Department of Probation and Parole learned Jeffery Gibson (B/M, D.O.B. 04/10/68) of Houma was spotted in a Raceland subdivision. Agents responded to the 200 block of Sylvester Avenue in Raceland and spotted two men walking along the street. One of the men was identified as Jeffery Gibson, also known as Jazzy. As agents were approaching, Gibson turned and spotted them. The agents made contact with Gibson and noticed the interior lining of one of his pockets was exposed as if it had just been emptied. Agents searched the nearby area and discovered two small rocks of suspected crack cocaine on the ground. A preliminary field test yielded a positive result for the presence of cocaine. Gibson was placed under arrest for possession of crack cocaine and transported to the Detention Center where he is being held in lieu of $50,000 bond as set by Judge Barbera. He is additionally being held for the Louisiana Department of Probation and Parole.
