Belle Rose Man Jailed on Narcotics Charge

          On April 27, 2017, Kirby Thomas of 117 Greenbriar St. Belle Rose, LA., age 38, pled guilty to Possession of a Schedule II Controlled Dangerous Substance. Thomas was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Thomas Daigle, and presiding over this matter was the Honorable Judge Jason Verdigets. Thomas entered this plea of guilty on the morning of his scheduled trial.  

          On February 10, 2013, deputies with the Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office initiated a traffic stop near Greenbriar St. in Belle Rose on a 2004 black Dodge pick-up truck after observing a traffic violation. Upon making contact with the driver of the vehicle who was identified as Kirby Thomas, deputies observed a clear plastic baggie containing cocaine in plain view inside of the vehicle. Thomas was subsequently arrested and transported to the Assumption Parish Jail where he was booked accordingly. 

          Upon entering a guilty plea to the above mentioned charge, Judge Verdigets ordered that Thomas be committed to the Louisiana Department of Corrections for a period of 18 months with credit for time served. Thomas remains incarcerated at the Assumption Parish Detention Center as a result of this conviction as well as several other pending charges including charges related to his involvement in a January shooting in Belle Rose.
