LABADIEVILLE — A Thibodaux man was arrested and booked with illegally carrying a handgun and wearing body armor, the Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office said Monday.
Sheriff’s deputies responded to a fight on Violet Street on Friday afternoon, where witnesses told them a man, later identified as Troy Frazier, was wearing a bulletproof vest and brandishing a handgun in an aggressive manner, a news release says.
Sheriff’s Detective Jason Terry located Frazier at the scene and saw him place a handgun in the front seat of his vehicle, the release says. Frazier, a convicted felon who was wanted on a traffic warrant by Thibodaux police, was taken into custody by Terry, according to the release.
Upon inspection, Terry discovered that Frazier was wearing military-issued body armor and had 11 .45-caliber pistol bullets in his pocket, the release says.
Terry also discovered a loaded .45-caliber handgun after searching Frazier’s vehicle, the release says. The gun had been reported stolen by Houma police.
Frazier, 30, 101 Caroline St., Apt. 2, Thibodaux, was booked into the Assumption Parish Detention Center on counts of carrying a firearm by a convicted felon, unlawful use of body armor and illegal possession of a stolen firearm, the release says.
