ABBEVILLE — Vermilion Parish sheriff’s deputies late Friday were searching for an Abbeville man and his girlfriend they say were found to have large amounts of crystal meth and other drugs in their car and house.
Agents with the Vermilion Municipal Narcotics Task Force tried to serve felony warrants to Jonathan Markelle Comeaux on Friday, who fled in a vehicle, struck a home and then fled on foot, evading police, according to a news release.
Officers found crystal meth in Comeaux’s car, the release said, and then searched his residence at 504 Alphonse Street in Abbeville, where Comeaux lives with his girlfriend, Marilo Diggs.
More drugs and “various evidence of suspected narcotic crime and trafficking” were found at the house, according to the news release.
The Vermilion Parish Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone who knows where to find Comeaux and Diggs to contact them at 893-0871 or 740-4501.
