Posted: Updated:
MORGAN CITY, LA (WAFB) -

A tip that a man was possibly in possession of child porn led to an investigation which eventually resulted in his arrest.

Louisiana State Police said Austin Vinning, 20, of Morgan City was booked into the St. Martin Parish Jail on charges of possession of child pornography, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Troopers said the case was part of "Operation Child Watch," which seeks to rescue children from the potential abuse of those who prey on their innocence.

Detectives with LSP served a search warrant at Vinning's home Wednesday. Deputies with the St. Martin Parish Sheriff's Office assisted in the search.

Investigators said during their preliminary search of the suspect's digital media devices they found several movies depicting child porn.

They also reported finding marijuana and drug paraphernalia in the home.

The investigation is ongoing.
