Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre announced 13 people were arrested overnight in Lafourche Parish. This comes as patrol efforts have increased in the past week due to numerous law enforcement agencies assisting in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida.
“We are seeing a lot of drug arrests,” said Sheriff Webre. “Our officers are using discretion when enforcing the curfew, but arrests typically come when someone is caught out after curfew with drugs or begins fighting with or resisting deputies.”
The following individuals were arrested during the patrol night shift which began at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, September 8 through 5 a.m. on Thursday, September 9.

We are sincerely grateful for all the assistance.”
