Attorney General Jeff Landry Makes Child Exploitation Arrest

BATON ROUGE, LA – Attorney General Jeff Landry today announced the arrest of a Belle Chasse man who had plans to meet up with a juvenile for sex.

“Though our office continues to be threatened with budget cuts, we are committed to taking child predators off the streets and away from our children," said General Landry. “Using the resources we have, my Cyber Crime Unit will continue to investigate and arrest adults who exploit children.”

Gary Naquin, 51 of Belle Chasse, was arrested on one count of Indecent Behavior with a Juvenile and one count of Attempted Carnal Knowledge of a Juvenile. Naquin had plans to meet who he believed to be a juvenile for sex. When he arrived to meet the juvenile at a planned location in Harvey, Naquin was arrested without indecent by agents from General Landry's Cyber Crime Unit and deputies from the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office. Naquin was booked into the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center.

General Landry’s Cyber Crime Unit has investigated thousands of computer crimes that have victimized children from infants to 16 years of age. To report child exploitation, call the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation at 800-256-4506.


Coming soon, the attorney's general office seeks to provide a mechanism by which to take online payments for collections.
