HAMMOND, LA (WAFB) -

Authorities arrested a man after sexually explicit images and videos of children were found in his home Friday.

Patrick Lites, 32, of Hammond is charged with pornography involving juveniles.

The Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office reported a preliminary search of the home turned up the pictures and videos.

Detectives noted there was one video that depicted a child (possibly about 5 years old) engaged in sex acts with multiple adults.

Sheriff Daniel Edwards said a proactive online child porn investigation led agents to Lites.

He was booked into the Tangipahoa Parish Jail. His bond was set at $100,000.

TPSO, US Homeland Security and the Louisiana Office of Attorney General partnered together in this investigation.

Note: The picture of the suspect was submitted blurred.
