A man arrested under a police and SWAT warrant was indicted this week for burglary of a habitation.

Larry Bob Hebert, 25, was indicted for a May 12 incident.

Port Arthur Police were called to a home in the 4200 block of Lansing Avenue where the homeowner stated he left his home at approximately 7:30 a.m. that morning and returned about three hours later to discover the burglary, according to the probable cause affidavit.

A window in his home was broken, a gun cabinet pried open and three handguns and some jewelry were reportedly stolen.

Less than a week later PAPD officers were investigating a different crime near that area in which Hebert was reportedly a suspect. This led police to look at Hebert as a possible suspect in the burglary.

Hebert was on probation at the time of the burglary and a GPS report allegedly showed him at the residence multiple times, the document read.

Police said fingerprints belonging to Hebert were also found at the scene.

PAPD and SWAT personnel executed a search and arrest effort at a Lansing Avenue home May 19, which led to Hebert’s arrest on a burglary charge. He and remains in the Jefferson County Correctional facility on bonds totaling $215,000.


An indictment is not a final conviction of guilt; it is only a ruling by the grand jury that allows the district attorney’s office to proceed with a criminal case.
