LIVINGSTON PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

The Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office arrested a man who they say was in possession of child pornography on Sept. 4.

According to Sheriff Jason Ard, deputies made contact with 47-year-old Jerry Brown as he sat in his vehicle in the parking lot of a Watson retailer on LA Hwy 16. Brown was parked in part of the parking lot away from other vehicles. As deputies approached, they say Brown made eye contact with them, and then tried to conceal something in the vehicle’s floorboard.

Deputies questioned Brown as to why he was parked in such a remote area, and asked him what he was trying to hide. They said Brown admitted that he was on federal probation for child pornography, and that a computer in his vehicle could cause him problems.

Deputies searched Brown’s vehicle. They reportedly found a laptop computer with numerous photographs of children engaged in sexual acts. The sheriff said Brown also had a computer flash drive that had over 1,000 photographs and videos of child pornography. During the search, deputies also found several kinds of prescription pills.

Brown was arrested and booked on charges including pornography involving juveniles, possession of Schedule II CDS, possession of a legend drug and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Brown was booked into the Catahoula Parish Detention Center because the Livingston Parish Detention Center is under repair due to flooding. His bond was set at $10,040,500.00.
