Attorney General Jeff Landry and his Cyber Crime Unit are asking for assistance in locating a Lafayette man accused of child sex crime.

Landry says that 65-year-old Durice "Joey" Richard of Lafayette, is wanted by the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation on 30 counts of possession of sexual abuse images/videos of children, two counts of possession of sexual abuse images/videos of children, two counts of attempted production of sexual abuse images/videos of children, one count of indecent behavior with a juvenile, and one count of computer-aided solicitation of a minor. 

Richard was last known to be in the Lafayette area. The AG’s Office says that Richard is an electrician who sells generators. He is believed to be driving a white Chevrolet Silverado truck with a large dent on the back. 

“Richard is considered dangerous, and anyone who comes in contact with him should immediately contact local law enforcement,” said General Landry.

Officials ask that if anyone has information on Richard’s whereabouts or his potential victims, please call 911. All callers may remain anonymous.
