A St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office employee was arrested Thursday by the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation’s Cyber Crime Unit.

Brett Bahm, a process server for the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office Civil Division, was arrested on a warrant that was issued Wednesday. Bahm’s employment with the Sheriff’s Office was immediately terminated, according to a news release.

The suspect had been employed with the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office since 1998.

Bahm was booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail on the following charges:

  • L.R.S. 14:81.1 Pornography Involving Juveniles

“I hold all of our employees to a higher standard. When a public servant betrays the trust of the community, that individual must face the consequences,” said Sheriff Randy Smith.

The investigation is ongoing.
