BATON ROUGE - The Attorney General’s Office announced the arrest of two Sulphur men on child pornography charges.

39-year-old Benjamin Walker was booked on charges of six counts of possessing pornography involving juveniles and a single count of obstructing justice after cyber crime investigators executed a search warrant at the man’s residence. In the home, agents found numerous pornographic images of children. Also during the search, investigators discovered that Walker attempted to dispose of a cell phone containing incriminating evidence as agents arrived on the scene.

22-year-old Andrew Thornton was booked on charges of 15 counts of possession of pornography involving juveniles.

Both men were booked into Calcasieu Parish Jail on Thursday. If convicted, Walker and Thornton face up to 20 years in prison for each count of child porn possession.
