Joint narcotics investigation leads to arrest by TPSO


July 2, 2024


Terrebonne Parish Sheriff Tim Soignet announced the arrest of a Houma man on multiple narcotics related charges, in connection with a joint investigation completed by the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Narcotics Division and Louisiana State Police CID Region 2.  Aaron Anthony Lampton, 43, was located and arrested for multiple narcotics violations, stemming from the investigation. 

In June of 2024, Authorities began receiving anonymous information in regard to illegal narcotics-based activity from a specific residence in the Village East neighborhood, where Lampton was identified and named as the person responsible.  An investigation began into Lampton, which culminated in Authorities encountering him during a traffic stop in the 100 block of Roy Street on Thursday evening, shortly before 5:00 pm.  During the traffic stop, Lampton attempted to discard illegal narcotics to avoid detection, and he was immediately detained.


As Authorities continued the investigation, the circumstances led to a search warrant for Lampton’s residence.  At the completion of the search, Authorities located distribution amounts of Fentanyl laced Heroin, numerous items of drug paraphernalia consistent with the distribution of narcotics, 7 firearms, one of which was determined to be stolen locally, and close to $3,000 in cash.

Aaron Anthony Lampton was arrested on charges of Possession with the Intent to Distribute CDS I, Illegal possession of a stolen firearm, Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, Obstruction of justice, Transaction involving drug proceeds, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Insurance/security required, Driving under suspension, as well as additional narcotics related arrest warrants.  Lampton was jailed at the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Complex, where he remains on a $504, 500 total bond by local judges.

Sheriff Soignet would like to commend all of the agencies represented for their outstanding work achieved in this investigation.  Sheriff Soignet said, “I’m extremely proud of our staff and Public Safety Partners for the tremendous job they continue to do day in and day out to rid our parish of dangerous narcotics and offenders.  These agencies are a dedicated group of individuals who are relentless with the enforcement of narcotics activity in our parish, and we are very lucky to have this group protecting our community.”

Sheriff Tim Soignet would like to remind residents that suspicious behavior and drug related activity information can always be reported anonymously through Crime Stoppers Bayou Region at 1-800-743-7433, online at, or via the Bayou Tips app on mobile devices.  Tipsters could be eligible for a $1,000 reward.
