A K-9 officer helped the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office arrest a 30-year-old on multiple drug charges.

On Nov. 26 at about 7:21 p.m., deputies were called to a disturbance on the 2100 block of Bayou Blue Road.

While there, authorities were told that Danny Hebert, 30, was possibly under the influence of narcotics, and was trying to break into a residence while demanding a cigarette.

Deputies were also informed that Hebert had active warrants for domestic abuse battery in connection to an allegation that he had beaten his mother and back-up units responded to the scene.

Hebert was located inside a mobile home a short distance from the complainant’s residence and as he was placed under arrest, authorities located what was identified as a pipe used to smoke meth.

As the arresting deputy escorted the handcuffed Hebert, the suspect knocked the deputy off-balance with his shoulder, broke free and started to run.

Seeing this, the deputy at the scene deployed his K-9 partner, resulting in the suspect quickly being re-apprehended.

Hebert was transported to the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Complex where he was booked on a felony charge of resisting an officer with force or violence; battery on a police officer; simple escape; possession of methamphetamine; and possession of drug paraphernalia; disturbing the peace; obstruction of justice and appearing in an intoxicated condition. Bonds were set at a total of $35,000.

“Our responding officers displayed a professional response to a potentially difficult situation,” said Col. Terry Daigre, Chief Criminal Deputy. “Special thanks are due to our patrol officers as well as the K-9 officer and his partner for a swift apprehension.”
