A Moss Bluff man is accused of child pornography possession, according to a news release from the Louisiana State Police.

Gary Donahoo, 66, is charged with pornography involving juveniles.

Authorities said on Wednesday, investigators with the State Police Bureau of Investigations and U.S. Homeland Security Investigations conducted a search warrant at a Moss Bluff residence.

Authorities said the warrant was obtained as the result of an Operation Child Watch investigation into the suspected downloading of child pornography.

"A search of the residence of 66-year-old Gary Donahoo, of Moss Bluff, resulted in the seizure of several computers. During questioning, Donahoo admitted to downloading sexually explicit images of children from the Internet," the release states.

Donahoo was booked into the Calcasieu Parish Correctional Center.

Authorities said if convicted, Donahoo faces up to a $50,000 fine and from five to 20 years in prison without benefit of parole, probation or suspension of sentence.
