“Legendary” investigator retires

George Garza
Law enforcement in Vidor and Orange County is losing a talented and resourceful peace officer with last week’s retirement of Detective Sergeant L.B. Cupit from the Vidor Police Department. With a full head of blond hair and an obviously fit physique covered by his sport coat and dress shirt, Cupit looks too young to retire. But the veteran police  office is sixty-nine years-old and is looking forward to sitting on his lakefront porch. L.B. Cupit has been in law enforcement for forty-one years, serving the people of Vidor for the last thirty years. Prior to becoming a City of  Vidor patrol officer in January of 1985, Cupit worked as a deputy for the Sabine County Sherriff’s Office and an police officer with the City of Lufkin and the City of West Orange  Police Departments. Cupit said that he was transferred to the detective division of the Vidor Police Department about twenty years ago.
