Mandeville, La (NBC3) — A New Orleans Police Department officer is in jail for possessing child pornography.
Bradley Wax, 54, of Mandeville, was arrested Wednesday and charged with 38 counts of pornography involving juveniles.
The arrest follows a joint investigation with the Attorney General’s Cyber Crime Unit, St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office and Homeland Security Investigations.
Detectives conducted an undercover online operation that led to a search warrant on Wax’s home in January.
Forensic analysis done on Wax’s computers and other electronic devices revealed that he was in possession of child pornography.
Wax was booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail. If convicted, he faces 20 years in prison on each count of child pornography.
