ZACHARY, La. (WAFB) - Louisiana State Police said they have arrested a Zachary man for his participation in child exploitation on a social media app.

Robert Magee, 55, of Zachary, is facing charges related to the computer-aided solicitation for sexual purposes of a juvenile and attempted felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile.

LSP’s Special Victims Unit launched an undercover investigation into Magee’s activities earlier this month.

Authorities said Magee was identified as having an online conversation with an undercover trooper posing as a juvenile.

Magee further solicited and agreed to meet the juvenile for sex.

LSP and the Zachary Police Department took Magee into custody on Sept. 12, after he arrived at a meeting location where he agreed to meet the juvenile to have sex.

The case remains under investigation.
