A Bossier City man has been arrested and charged with 300 counts of possession of pornography involving juveniles and three counts of distribution of pornography involving juveniles.

In March of 2015, Louisiana State Police Special Victims Unit initiated an investigation of an IP address in Bossier Parish that was downloading child pornography.  During the investigation the IP address shared child pornography with LSP SVU Detectives.

On March 24, LSP SVU Detectives, along with the Federal Bureau of Investigations, Home Land Security Investigations, Bossier City Marshal’s Office, Caddo Sheriff’s Office, Shreveport Vice, Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office, Bossier City Police Department and Springhill Police Department executed a search warrant at the residence. During the search of the residence, agents located numerous live feed cameras throughout the house, along with monitors, recording houses in the neighborhood where children resided.  Additionally, child pornography was being downloaded at the time of the search.

After the search warrant was executed on the residence, 60-year-old Robert Childs of Bossier was arrested and charged with 300 counts of possession of pornography involving juveniles and three counts of distribution of pornography involving juveniles. Childs’ bond was set at $3 million and if convicted on these charges he could face up to 120 years in prison without benefit of parole.

Springhill Police Chief Will Lynd says none of the evidence was collected in or from north Webster Parish.

“I have a detective from my force who is on the Crimes Against Children Task Force,” Lynd said. “He was involved with this investigation and arrest.”

The Louisiana State Police Special Victims Unit will continue to maintain close partnerships with law enforcement agencies statewide to locate and arrest those individuals who choose to participate in the crime of child pornography.
