AG Landry says the arrest was a result of a joint investigation with the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation, Homeland Security Investigations, Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office, Vermilion Parish Sheriff’s Office, and Kaplan Police Department.

Hoffman was booked into the Vermillion Parish Jail.

Kaplan Police Chief Josh Hardy has confirmed that Huffman was an officer with the his department. "He was arrested yesterday and he no longer works for my department," Hardy tells KATC.

“My Cyber Crime Unit and I are committed to investigating and arresting those who exploit our children, no matter their professions or positions,” said AG Landry. “Crimes against children are some of the most heinous acts imaginable, and they are even more despicable when perpetrated by people in authority who are supposed to be protecting kids.
