WELSH, LA (KPLC) -

Authorities have located a missing 33-year-old Welsh man.

Welsh Police Chief Marcus Crochet said Nicholas E. Coble was found alive and safe.

Authorities said Coble was shot by 26-year-old Rosalyn Breaux, of Jennings, at a home in the 500 block of Naebers Street in Welsh on June 6. Breaux, who has been charged with manslaughter and attempted manslaughter, fatally shot Jeremy Ardoin during the incident.

Coble, who was a garbage man for the City of Welsh, was arrested in early February on charges of malfeasance in office, crystal meth possession, possession of synthetic marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia. Authorities said Coble was selling the drugs out of the garbage truck.
