NEW IBERIA, LA (KPLC) -
A New Iberia man is accused of distribution of child pornography, according to a news release from Louisiana State Police.
Troopers said earlier this month, detectives received information which reportedly indicated that 60-year-old Paul Smith was possibly in possession of, and distributing, child pornography.
Troopers said through the course investigation, detectives were able to obtain information which suggested that Smith was in possession of, and distributing, child pornography.
"Based on all the information, detectives were able to obtain a search warrant for Smith's home. Last week, detectives served the search warrant at Smith's home and seized several digital media storage devices. During a preliminary search of the devices, detectives located several movies which depicted child pornography," troopers said in a release.
An arrest warrant was issued, and Monday, Smith was arrested for possession of child pornography and distribution of child pornography.
Smith was booked into the Iberia Parish Jail without incident.
The case remains under investigation.
Troopers said this the case was part of "Operation Child Watch." Its mission is to rescue children from the potential abuse of child predators who prey on the innocence of a child. Louisiana State Police will continue to work closely with other law enforcement agencies to locate and arrest these individuals.
