A Lafayette man has been arrested, booked on 180 counts of pornography involving juveniles.

31-year-old Seth M. Burch of Lafayette was arrested Monday after turning himself over to police. He already is facing child pornography possession charges from a 2019 arrest; that case has a hearing set for later this year.

Police say a search warrant was issued on a residence in the 100 block of Avalon Street. There, detectives say they recovered several videos and images on a cell phone belonging to Burch.

An arrest warrant was then issued.

On August 23rd, Burch turned himself in to authorities at the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center. He was booked with 180 counts of Pornography Involving Juveniles.
