One of Ten Most Wanted Texas Fugitives Arrested by Ville Platte Police


On June 10, 2014 at approximately 3:10 p.m. Chief Neal Lartigue with the Ville Platte Police Department received information regarding the whereabouts of a fugitive on the Texas Department of Public Safety 's ten most wanted fugitives list.  According to Chief Lartigue, fugitive Cory James Fisher, 35 was wanted in Texas for multiple offenses including possession of cocaine, tampering with evidence and parole violation.  Chief Lartigue made contact with the Evangeline Parish Sheriff's Office  and the Ville Platte City Marshal's Office requesting assistance in locating and apprehending Fisher.  Once in the area Fisher was reported to be, they learned that he left the area in an undescribed vehicle.  Agencies began searching the area and Chief Lartigue located the vehicle on Doucet Lane which is just outside of the city limits of Ville Platte. Chief Lartigue initiated a traffic stop and Fisher was apprehended without incident with the assistance of the Evangeline Parish Sheriff's Office and the Ville Platte City Marshal's Office. Cory James Fisher is being held in the Ville Platte City Jail awaiting extradition.    Chief Lartigue stated that teamwork and quick response was key in catching this fugitive who was on the run. 

Chief Lartigue reminds residents that anonymous tips like this one made a big difference in the amount of time the fugitive remained on the streets.  To report illegal activity in the city limits please contact the Ville Platte Police Department at 363-1313
