OPELOUSAS, LA (NBC33) — A cell phone business called police after they discovered sexually explicit photos of juveniles on the phone of a 31-year-old man.
The Opelousas Police Department arrested Brian Fontenot last week after he allowed officers to view the photos. He told investigators that he did not know the photographs were stored on his phone. Officials did not say how Fontenot obtained the images, nor did they reveal the ages of the juveniles.
Fontenot was arrested and charged with Possession of Pornography Involving Juveniles. He was booked into the Opelousas Police Department on a bond of $10,000.
The investigation is ongoing at this time. If you know any information related to this case, please contact the Opelousas Police Department at (337) 948-2500.
