Louisiana Man Arrested in Terrebonne Parish For Weapons Charges and Other Suspected Crimes

Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana – A Louisiana man was arrested in Terrebonne Parish for weapons charges and other suspected crimes.

Terrebonne Parish Sheriff Tim Soignet reported the arrest of a Schriever man on firearms-related charges on June 1, 2023, as the result of an investigation by Terrebonne Parish Narcotics Task Force Agents. Quintell Andre Craig, 27, of Schriever, Louisiana was arrested for several alleged criminal acts as a result of his involvement in the investigation.

On May 30, 2023, soon before 10 p.m., the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Unit executed a search warrant. Agents were patrolling a neighborhood in Gray, Louisiana’s 2600 block of West Main Street when they noticed a suspicious male roaming around. Agents attempted to approach the male suspect, who reportedly fled the location on foot and threw a bag he was holding while evading officials. After a brief foot chase, Agents used a Taser to apprehend the male suspect, who was later identified as Quintell Andre Craig.

As the inquiry progressed, agents were able to collect Craig’s bag which contained a loaded firearm among other things, according to reports from police. Craig had outstanding warrants for Armed Robbery in another case, and he was a documented convicted felon, according to agents.

Quintell Andre Craig was charged with Illegal Carrying of a Weapon, Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, Resisting an Officer, and Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, as well as having outstanding arrest warrants. Craig was treated at the scene for a minor injury and was later transferred to the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Complex, where he is being held on a $375,000 bond set by local judges.

Sheriff Tim Soignet commended the Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Division for their rapid response, which directly influenced Craig’s arrest and the overall safe resolution of this situation. Sheriff Soignet said, “Our Agents do an incredible job when dealing with the dangers of their day-to-day encounters. I can’t say enough about how amazing this Division is, and the level of safety they provide for our community.”

An arrest is an indication that probable cause exists to believe the subject was involved in the offense alleged. All persons are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
