Over the past several months, the Houma Police Department’s Narcotics Division has been conducting investigation into the illegal sale of narcotics throughout the city limits of Houma. While doing so, several individuals were identified as being responsible for the illegal sale of heroin, cocaine, methamphetamines and other types of narcotics. Taking this into consideration, Houma Police obtained warrants on these individuals relative to the investigation.

On 2-13-19, during the early morning hours, Houma Police, accompanied by the Louisiana State Police, Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office and Thibodaux Police Department collaboratively joined efforts during an operation titled, “Operation Fed Up” and saturated the area in an attempt to apprehend these individuals.

The reason this operation was titled, “Operation Fed Up” is a result of the continuous issues surrounding the opioid epidemic that is spreading throughout communities. Law enforcement, not only within our community, but communities across our nation are in a constant battle against the opioid epidemic. The Houma Police Department, with the full support of Terrebonne Parish President Gordon Dove, is dedicated to remaining proactive in combating the issue which can affect any family.

The operation resulted in multiple suspects being apprehended on warrants relative to Distribution and Possession of the aforementioned narcotics. The Houma Police Department as well as other law enforcement agencies would like to inform the community that these types of operations will continue as we collectively attempt to rid neighborhoods of issues that plague them.
