TANGIPAHOA PARISH, LA — A married couple has been arrested in Tangipahoa Parish on child pornography charges.
Sheriff's detectives executed a search warrant at a Loranger residence today and located images of child pornography on electronic equipment located within the residence.
A preliminary search of the residence revealed the presence of multiple sexually explicit images of a child approximately 3 - 4 years old. Detectives seized several electronic items which will be forensically examined in the upcoming weeks.
Richard W. Dunnington, 51, and Lisa Fay Dunnington, 50 were both charged with Pornography Involving Juveniles.
Detectives from the Tri-parish Narcotics Task Force were called to the scene to assist after detectives located illegal narcotics and drug paraphernalia in the residence. Consequently, the Dunnington's are likely to face additional drug related charges within the next few days.
The Dunningtons were booked into the Tangipahoa Parish Jail and are awaiting bond.
