LEESVILLE, LA (WAFB) -

A Leesville man was arrested Wednesday on five counts of possessing pornography involving juveniles.

The Louisiana Attorney General's Office reports the arrest of 52-year-old Charles Evan Stauffer was part of a joint investigation involving the Attorney General's Cyber Crime Unit, Vernon Parish Sheriff's Office, and Homeland Security Investigations. Stauffer was booked into the Vernon Parish Jail without incident.

If convicted as charged, Stauffer faces up to 20 years in prison on each count of child pornography.

Attorney General Caldwell said, "Arrests like these are possible because of solid teamwork between federal, state and local law enforcement agencies. We are using the latest technology and tools available to locate and capture these Internet culprits."
