Posted: Updated:

BATON ROUGE, La. (KALB News Channel 5) — Attorney General's Cyber Crime Unit arrests two men for child pornography distribution.

Two Acadiana men are behind bars after an undercover cyber crime investigation revealed the men were distributing child pornography.

On March 13, Investigators with the Louisiana Attorney General's Cyber Crime Unit arrested Kenneth Poullard, 39, of Crowley, on 50 counts of possessing and a single count of distributing pornography involving juveniles. 

The arrest came after a joint investigation involving the Louisiana Attorney General's Cyber Crime Unit, Homeland Security Investigations, Louisiana State Police, St. Landry Parish Sheriff's Office and the Acadia Parish Sheriff's Office. Poullard was arrested at his residence and booked into the Acadia Parish Jail.

In a separate incident, Paul Ezra Campbell, 40, of Abbeville, was also arrested on March 13 and booked into the Vermilion Parish Jail on 21 counts of possessing and one count of distributing pornography involving juveniles.  The joint investigation involved the Attorney General's CCU, Homeland Security Investigations, St. Landry Parish Sheriff's Office and the Vermilion Parish Sheriff's Office.

Both Poullard and Campbell were caught as a result of undercover cyber crime investigations. Officials said investigators determined the men had made images of child pornography available for download. While executing search warrants on the suspects' houses, agents discovered dozens of child pornography images stored on their computers.

If convicted, the men face up to 20 years in prison on each count of child pornography.
