An Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office investigation into a December tip about bestiality images being posted on the Internet ended Wednesday with the arrest of a Gonzales couple.
Jonathan Small, 31, and Jessica Chaney, 27, were arrested and booked on counts of obscenity and crimes against nature, Chief Deputy Tony Bacala said.
The investigation showed Small, a former employee of the Sheriff’s Office who worked at the Ascension Parish Jail, produced and posted the material online, Bacala said in a news release. Small was fired from his job in September, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Bacala said that Small was fired for internal policy violations.
Evidence from the couple’s home, including computers and cameras, was obtained during a search Wednesday.
Small and Chaney, whose address is listed as 2320 N. Amelia Ave., Gonzales, are being held in the parish jail on $5,000 bail.
