Authorities have arrested two south Louisiana men accused of child exploitation after finding them in possession of images or videos of sexual abuse, according to a news release Wednesday from the state Attorney General's Office.

Kevin Duke, 61, of Greenwell Springs, was arrested on nine counts of possession of sexual abuse images or videos of children under the age of 13 and one count of distribution of sexual abuse images or videos of children. 

Zachary Cagle, 22, of Lake Charles, was also arrested on 80 counts of possession. 

In both cases, the Attorney General's Cyber Crime Unit worked with Homeland Security Investigations and local law enforcement agencies.

"The victimizing of innocent children will not be tolerated," state Attorney General Jeff Landry said in a statement about the arrests. "We will continue our efforts in doing all we legally can to bring those who expose and exploit our state's children to justice."
