According to Sheriff Mike Couvillon, Chief Tony Hardy and Chief Boyd Adams, the Vermilion / Municipal task force recently made following arrests for drug related offenses due to undercover operations conducted within the parish.

While working streets sales disruption, the Task Force came across Travis Davidson Jr (dob 11-12-94) of Abbeville, who was wanted on outstanding felony warrants. The warrants were the result of Davidson failing to appear for trial for drug charges, and home invasion.

Upon agents activating emergency lights, and attempting to stop Davidson, he began to flee in the vehicle he was driving. Agents followed behind, only able to keep an eye on Davidson’s whereabouts, due to Davidson driving the vehicle in such a violent manner. Agents noticed Davidson lose control of the vehicle and the car began to flip.

Upon driving up to the scene, it was noticed that Davidson escaped the vehicle and ran into a nearby sugarcane field. Davidson was located by agents a short time later as he attempted to seek refuge at residence in the area. Davidson was arrested on the parole warrants, and further charged with obstruction of justice and resisting arrest.

Kandas Bertrand (DOB 12-28-87) of Gueydan, was arrested and charged with possession of Alprazolam, and possession of Methadone

Sheriff Mike Couvillon would like to thank the following persons for their effort in assisting with Task Force personnel. Abbeville Mayor Mark Piazza, Kaplan Mayor Kirk Champagne, Abbeville Chief of Police Tony Hardy and Kaplan Chief Boyd Adams “I realize times are financially tough all over, but the Mayors and Chiefs of these cities are committed to finding the funds to help the Task Force combat the illicit drugs problem that ruins our communities. The people of Vermilion and our children are the benefactors of these city leaders’ great efforts. It is my hope that in the near future other towns and cities in the parish of Vermilion will be able to assist in the continuing fight against illicit drugs.”

Finally, Sheriff Couvillon would like to applaud the concerned citizens of Vermilion Parish for their awareness and assistance in helping the Sheriff’s Office in fighting the war on illegal drugs. He encourages all citizens with information in regards to illegal drug activities to contact the Vermilion Parish Sheriff’s Office or the Vermilion Parish Municipal Narcotics Task Force at 337-740-4501 or E-mail the Task Force anonymously at taskforce@vpso.net and your e-mail will be held in the “strictest of confidence” and replied to in a very timely manner.
