TERREBONNE PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

Terrebonne deputies arrest a man who was shot in the stomach, after they say they found more than $11,000 worth of marijuana at his home. 

Investigators say they believe 23 year old Randy Himel Jr. was shot while at least one person was trying to steal drugs from his home on Calumet Street in Thibodaux on Saturday.

Himel was released from the hospital on Sunday morning, then arrested later that evening. Detectives say they found more than 1,800 grams of marijuana, worth at least $11,000, and prescription pills, worth more than $550, at Himel's home. They say they also found a handgun, believed to be used in the shooting, as well as a drug scale, money counter and $645.

Himel faces several charges, including possession with the intent to distribute marijuana, CDS (Xanax), a legend drug (Quetiapine fumarate), and drug paraphernalia. He remains in the Terrebonne Parish Jail on a $40,000 bond.

This case remains under investigation and anyone with information is asked to call the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office at 985-876-2500 or Bayou Region CrimeStoppers at 1-800-743-7433.
