Convicted Felon Caught In Possession Of 686 Ecstasy Pills, Promethazine Syrup And A Stolen Firearm

Thibodaux Chief of Police Bryan Zeringue announced the arrest of Kevin Tolbert (B/M, 34 of Thibodaux, La.), for Violation of a Stop Sign, Sale, Distribution, Or Possession of a Legend Drug Without a Prescription or Order Prohibited, Possession with Intent to Distribute MDMA (Felony), Possession of a Firearm/Carry Concealed Weapon by a Convicted Felon (Felony), Illegal Possession of a Stolen Firearm (Felony) & Illegal Carrying of a Weapon in the Presence of CDS (Felony).
On Tuesday, February 25th, 2020, Thibodaux Police Department Narcotic’s Agents conducted a traffic stop on a 2006 Maroon Chevrolet Trailblazer for failing to stop at a stop sign at the intersection of Bryant Street & Cardinal Drive. After being hesitant to stop the vehicle for police, the driver finally came to a stop in the 1300 block of Martin Luther King Boulevard. The driver (Kevin Tolbert) who was observed reaching toward the passenger side of the vehicle was then ordered seven times to exit the vehicle before complying.
Upon Agent’s making contact with Mr. Tolbert, he appeared nervous and evaded Agent’s questions. During this time, a Canine gave a positive alert to the odor of some type of illegal narcotics coming from the vehicle. A search of the vehicle rendered the findings of a loaded Smith & Wesson Pistol, 1 full pint bottle of suspected Promethazine Syrup & 686 suspected Ecstasy Pills. The firearm in question was learned to be stolen out of Texas. All items seized, were found in the locked glove compartment, which is the direction Mr. Tolbert was seen reaching prior to exiting the vehicle.
Mr. Tolbert was transported to the Lafourche Parish Correctional Complex, where he later posted a $50,600.00 bond.
