HAMMOND - An investigation led by Louisiana Attorney General "Buddy" Caldwell's Cyber Crime Unit led to the Wednesday arrest of a Hammond man accused of 16 counts of child pornography.

19-year-old Brandon Brown was booked into Tangipahoa Parish Jail on 15 counts of possession of and one count of distribution of pornography involving juveniles on Aug. 16 after his arrest following a joint investigation by regional and federal law enforcement agencies.

The Cyber Crime Unit began investigating Brown based on a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Upon a search of Brown's Milton Road residence, agents located numerous pornographic images and videos of children all under 13 years of age.

Brown faces up to 20 years in prison on each count if he is convicted.

The investigation remains ongoing pending a full forensic examination of the evidence gathered by agents, according to Attorney General Caldwell.
