Thibodaux Chief of Police Scott Silverii announced the arrest of Niki Hebert (W/F, 23) for Simple Criminal Damage to Property and Unauthorized Entry of an Inhabited Dwelling.
Tuesday night, May 7th, just before 9:00 p.m. the victim reported returning to his home in the 100 Block of Alice Drive to find a large cement block had been thrown through the back glass door. No items were reported missing by the victim. Officers knew that Niki Hebert had left several items at the home from an earlier complaint, and the items were no longer there.
