BATON ROUGE - The Attorney General's Office said their high tech crime unit caught a Baton Rouge man highjacking a wireless router to look at child porn.

Authorities arrested Richard Wells-Lightsey, 26, on Friday as part of a joint investigation with the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office, AG's High Tech Crime and Fugitive Apprehension Units, and Homeland Security Investigations.

Investigators charged Lightsey with one count of unauthorized use to a wireless router, and one count of pornography involving juveniles.

Deputies booked Lightsey into the parish prison. The Attorney General's Office said he could face up to 30 years in prison if convicted.
