District Attorney Brad Burget announced this week that Phillip Webber has been appointed the new investigator for the DA’s office.
Webber replaces longtime investigator Johnny Loomis, who retired effective June 30.
Webber, who is 50, took over the position on July 1.
A 22-year employee of the Concordia Parish Sheriff’s Office, Webber served as chief investigator.
In his new role as investigator for the district attorney’s office, Webber will assist Burget and the assistant district attorneys in investigative work as they prepare cases for court.
Burget said he has known Webber for 20 years and is certain he will serve the parish well.
“He is a man of high quality and high character and he will do a wonderful job as an investigator for the DA’s office,” Burget said.
Burget said Webber “has many years of experience as a line deputy and an investigator for the sheriff’s office. He has outstanding people skills and is well versed in the type of technology used today to solve crimes.”
