Around1:30 pm on Friday, June 13, 2012, the Assumption
Parish Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to Violet Street in Labadieville in
reference to a fight. Upon arrival, deputies spoke with witnesses in the area
who advised that a subject by the name "Troy”
was wearing a bullet proof vest and showing people in the area a handgun in an
aggressive manner. Witnesses advised that Troy
had departed from the area prior to deputies’ arrival and was last seen driving
a brown Chevy Tahoe heading towards Thibodaux.
Later in the afternoon around 6pm, Dispatch received a call stating that Troy was in the area of a
trailer park near Violet Street.
A Detective Sergeant Jason Terry proceeded to that location and observed an
individual he immediately identified as Troy Frazier from Thibodaux.
Sergeant Terry approached the vehicle from the rear and plainly observed
Frazier walk to the front passenger door of the vehicle and placed what
appeared to be a semi-automatic handgun onto the front seat of the vehicle through
the open window slot. Frazier was taken into custody after a warrant check
revealed he was wanted by Thibodaux Police Department (failure to appear for no
driver’s license). Upon patting Frazier
down, Sergeant Terry felt what appeared to be a heavy, thick vest concealed on
Frazier’s upper torso area. Upon removal, it was noted that the vest was
military issued body armor. Also on his person were eleven 45 caliber pistol
bullets in his front right pocket. After obtaining consent to search his
vehicle, Sergeant Terry recovered a fully loaded 45 caliber handgun. This weapon
had been reported stolen by Houma Police Department. After obtaining a criminal
history on Frazier, it was determined that he was a convicted felon.
Troy Frazier, age 30, of 101 Caroline Street, Apt. 2, Thibodaux,
Louisiana, was booked in the Assumption Parish Detention
Center and charged with
the following: Carrying of Firearm by Convicted Felon, Unlawful Use of Body
Armor and Illegal Possession of Stolen Firearm.
His bond has been set at $30,000.
