Lake Charles man arrested in child pornography case

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Officers with State Police Troop D arrested 19 year old Tyler Leger of Lake Charles for possession of child pornography.

Friday, police served a search warrant at a Lake Charles residence and searched two computers but found no child porn. Detectives then determined that a neighbor was accessing the router located at that residence illegally to search the Internet.

Investigators then went to 711 Murbelle Street and found Leger, along with his computer that did have child pornography on it. During an interview, Leger admitted to downloading the porn using his neighbors internet service without permission.

Leger was arrested for unauthorized use of a wireless router system and pornography involving juveniles and booked in the Calcaseiu Parish Correctional Center.

He is currently out on $12,500 bond.
