A former sheriff's deputy has been indicted on 337 counts of malfeasance for evidence tampering as well as on more than 100 other drug or weapons charges.

Former Assumption Parish Sheriff's deputy Lt. Louis B. Lambert was arrested June 11 on suspicion of tampering with drug evidence in the sheriff's evidence vault.

Authorities say the arrest capped a three-month investigation that turned up tampered evidence envelopes at Lambert's residence and in the evidence vault.
