From the Orange County Sheriff’s Office
On Wednesday, October 19, 2022, at 10:00 p.m., Detectives with the Orange County Narcotics Division stopped a vehicle on FM 1442 near Interstate 10, Orange, Texas after it was observed committing several traffic violations.
During the investigation, Detectives asked the driver, Cebe Guilbeaux, for consent to search his vehicle. During a search of the vehicle, Detectives located a large amount of methamphetamine along with two Chemical Dispensing Devices (CS Gas) , which are prohibited weapons in the State of Texas, and a Keltec .380 handgun, which had the serial number removed, inside the vehicle. Also inside the vehicle were numerous other weapons such as knives, machetes, restraint devices (i.e., handcuffs, chains, etc.), and metal batons.
Detectives believe Guilbeaux to be a member of the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas (ABT) as well as being responsible for the distribution of controlled substances and weapons in the Mauriceville area.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office is committed to pursuing felons in Orange County who may be unlawfully in possession of firearms and controlled substances with the intent of distributing those items within our community.
Guilbeaux is currently in jail for the following charges:
1) Possession of a Controlled Substance Penalty Group 1 > 4 grams < 200 grams (Methamphetamine) [2nd Degree Felony)
2) Possession of Prohibited Weapon – Chemical Dispensing Device (3rd Degree Felony)
