LORANGER - Sheriff's deputies in Tangipahoa Parish arrested a Loranger couple after investigators said they found drugs and child pornography in their home.

Deputies arrested Richard W. Dunnington, 51, and his wife Lisa Fay Dunnington, 50, yesterday after a search of their residence.

Investigators said they found several sexually explicit images of children between the ages of 3 and 4, and seized electronic items for forensic analysis as well.

They also said they found drug paraphernalia and illegal narcotics at the home, and called in the Tri-parish Narcotics Task Force for further investigation. The couple will likely face additional drug charges as a result.

The Dunningtons were booked into the Tangipahoa Parish Jail and are still waiting to have a bond amount assigned.
