A man accused of possessing and distributing child porn was arrested at his job Wednesday.

According to the probable cause report, Evan Taylor, 31, of Baton Rouge, is charged with more than 300 counts of possession of child porn.

The report stated an investigator with the Louisiana Department of Justice Cyber Crimes Unit received a video file from Taylor’s computer on July 20 that reportedly showed young girls having sex with men.

It added an investigator with Louisiana State Police Special Victims Unit went to Taylor’s job Wednesday morning to talk with him about the video. Taylor reportedly agreed to meet with detectives Thursday after business hours.

According to the report, investigators got a judge to issue a search warrant later Wednesday for Taylor’s apartment. Investigators reported finding a program running on Taylor’s computer that wipes all files from the hard drive.

They added they found several thumb drives, a small glass jar containing marijuana and a bong. The report stated 350 images of child porn, including some with babies and young children having sex with men.

Taylor was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on charges of possession of pornography involving juveniles (350 counts), distribution of pornography involving juveniles, obstruction of justice, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

His bond was set at $250,000.
