Ponchatoula man booked on rape, child porn counts

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Authorities have booked a 51-year-old Ponchatoula man on an aggravated rape count and three counts of pornography involving juveniles.

The state Attorney General's Office said Thursday that Robert Swan was arrested after a joint investigation with the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office.

Attorney General Buddy Caldwell says a search of Swan's home produced evidence he was involved in the possession, production and distribution of child pornography.

Caldwell says evidence obtained from a computer also led to investigators to book Swan with aggravated rape.

Laura Gerdes Colligan, a spokeswoman for the Attorney General's Office, said the alleged rape involved a young girl about two years ago, but details of that incident and the other counts remain under investigation.

It was unclear whether Swan has an attorney.
