Guns & Drugs Found In Raid Of Opelousas Couple’s Home
Meth, heroin, cocaine, marijuana and stolen guns made up some of the findings of an executed search warrant by the St. Landry SWAT team at the Opelousas home of 35-year-old Kelonda Thibodeaux and her husband 30-year-old Brandon Thibodeaux. Sheriff Bobby Guidroz says the total value of the drugs is nearly six figures.
“We probably got close to $100,000 or a little more in the value of the narcotics. And guns, we seized eleven, two were reported stolen from two different parishes,” said Guidroz.
All the guns seized still have serial numbers, so investigators are going through ATF to get info as to who they belong to. Guidroz says the operation was a long term investigation.
“Our guys got the right information and they pursued it for almost four years. We could have stopped this investigation probably a year or two into it, but these narcotics officers kept seeing it growing,” said Guidroz.
Guidroz says many late nights of surveillance, intel from the street, and help from the public contributes to the success of this bust and that public tips are always welcomed.
“We have a tips line. We want people to call us with information. That helps us and that gets us going on these cases,” said Guidroz.
