A Eunice man has been arrested after State Police say he was allegedly in possession of and shared child sexual abuse images.
Earlier this year, Troopers with the Louisiana State Police Special Victims Unit began an investigation into the distribution of child pornography, according to LSP Spokesperson TFC Thomas Gossen. Gossen said the suspect, identified as 41-year-old Kevin D. Briscoe of Eunice, shared illicit images of children with investigators that were acting in an undercover capacity.
Louisiana State Police and the St. Landry Parish Sheriff's Office served a search warrant at Briscoe's residence on Wednesday. Investigators found that Briscoe, who is a registered sex offender, was in possession of images of child sex abuse.
Briscoe was arrested and charged with Pornography Involving Juveniles (Second Offense) and was booked into the St. Landry Parish Correctional Facility.
Gossen added, "The Louisiana State Police maintains close partnerships with other law enforcement agencies and will continue to work to locate and arrest those individuals who choose to participate in the crime of child pornography. Anyone with information on these types of crimes is encouraged to contact the Louisiana State Police at 1-800-434-8007."
