PRAIRIEVILLE — Louisiana Cyber Crime Unit investigators arrested four men in three parishes on child pornography counts this week after joint probes with local, state and federal agencies.
Of the men — who were all arrested in separate investigations — two are from Ascension Parish and were booked Friday into Parish Prison near Donaldsonville.
All four men face up to 20 years in prison on each count of possessing child pornography, state Attorney General’s Office Cyber Crime Unit investigators said in a news release Friday.

Justin Landry, 34, 16366 Beech St., Prairieville, was arrested on 15 counts of distributing pornography involving juveniles.
In Assumption Parish, Brad Joseph Rivere, 32, 164 Jolimar St., Napoleonville, was arrested Tuesday on nine counts of distributing pornography involving juveniles after a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, investigators said. He was booked into the Assumption Parish Detention Center in Napoleonville, and investigators said additional charges are pending against Rivere.
In Jefferson Parish, Michael Timothy Buckel, 26, 2616 David Drive, Metairie, was arrested Monday and booked into Jefferson Parish Correction Center in Gretna on single counts of possessing and distributing pornography involving juveniles.
