The Vermilion Parish Narcotics Task Force strikes twice, after a stroke of bad timing from an Abbeville drug dealer.
Lien Nguyen (37) and David Broussard (22), both of Abbeville, were arrested on drug charges following the bust. Agents searching Nguyen’s house had just seized a large amount of high-quality marijuana and a stolen handgun when Broussard arrived at the home.
Deputies say Broussard was there to sell marijuana to Nguyen. When officers attempted to stop Broussard, he tried to drive away but crashed into one of the agent’s vehicles. A passenger was in the car and fled the area on foot. Police are still looking for that suspect, identified as 32-year-old Fabian Mitchell of Abbeville.
If you have any information on Mitchell’s whereabouts, call the Vermilion Parish Sheriff’s Office.
