Donaldsonville Chief - “I will tell you, it feels like an incredible whirlwind,” Ascension Parish Sheriff Bobby Webre, who is running for re-election this year, said. “It’s hard to believe it’s been close to five months already.”
Sheriff Webre is not wrong. In his first 100 days as sheriff, he’s seen at least three homicides, including the Dakota Theriot case and a triple shooting in Geismar. He’s overseen a $600k drug bust, a Bishop Woods home invasion with a suspect dead, bookings for multiple vehicle burglaries, an arrest for gunfire at a party in Donaldsonville, and even the arrest of a former Catholic Priest for felony theft.
The Weekly Citizen took an opportunity to speak with Webre on Friday, May 31. Since Jeff Wiley’s retirement, Webre has taken no time getting started as the leader of the Ascension Parish police force.
