Members of the Abbeville Police Department, with assistance from the Vermilion Parish Sheriff’s Office, executed a search warrant at a residence on the 700 block of N. Lamar Street, on July 14, 2020 at approximately 12:00 a.m.. The search warrant was in reference to a shooting incident which took place within the city limits of Abbeville on July 4, 2020.
Upon entering the property, officers observed and immediately arrested Treborian Cooper, who had active arrest warrants relating to the July 4, 2020 shooting. Once the scene was secured, officers conducted a search of the property. During the search, officers located a 9mm Glock handgun, a 7.62 AK 47 rifle, a small amount of marijuana, one suspected MDMA pill and several other pills which were later determined to not be a CDS.
An N.C.I.C. check was ran on both weapons. The 7.62 rifle was confirmed to be stolen out of St. Martin Parish.
Cooper was transported to the Abbeville Police Department for booking on the arrest warrants, which were for Illegal Use of Weapons, Aggravated Criminal Damage to Property and Possession of a Firearm in a Firearm Free Zone.
Charges stemming from the results of the search warrant are pending at this time.
