On November 11, 2020, Texas County Deputies responded to a stealing complaint on Tower Lane in the Eunice area. A couple reported returning to their campsite at Gist Ranch and discovering a person that had loaded their tent into a vehicle. Deputies contacted the suspect and a search of his vehicle led to the discovery of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia along with the stolen property. Lenny Hebert was arrested and transported to the Texas County Jail.
Texas County Prosecuting Attorney Parke Stevens charged Lenny J. Hebert, age 32, of Eunice, with Felony Stealing and Possession of a Controlled Substance. Hebert was held in the Texas County jail pending $150,000 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.
