NEW IBERIA, La. (KLFY) — Iberia Parish Sheriff’s deputies arrested a man on drugs charges early this morning after finding him in a stolen vehicle near the intersection of Soileau Rd. and Coteau Rd.
Justin Hoeber, 41, address unlisted, faces charges of illegal possession of stolen items, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a firearm in the presence of a controlled substance, and second or subsequent offenses.
