Burglary Arrest

Sheriff Scott K. Lindsey

On November 29, 2019, Texas County deputies were dispatched to a residence on Route W in the Summersville area for a report of a burglary in progress. The home owner reported finding an unknown male inside the residence. Upon arriving at the scene, a male subject later identified as William Hebert was being restrained by several citizens. Investigation revealed a relative of the home owner arrived at the residence and discovered Hebert inside the house. Hebert became agitated and threatened the subject. The subject armed himself and held Hebert at gunpoint until additional family members arrived to assist him. Deputies arrested Hebert and he attempted to resist the arrest, bite the deputies and move to the driver seat of the patrol vehicle. Hebert was restrained and transported to the Texas County Jail. 
Texas County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Jason Macpherson charged William T. Hebert, age 33 of Summersville with Burglary First Degree, Attempt to Tamper with a Motor Vehicle. Hebert was held in the Texas County Jail pending $400,000 bond.          

The above charges are mere accusations and are not evidence of guilt. Evidence in support of the charges must be presented before a court of competent jurisdiction whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.
