BATON ROUGE, LA - Attorney General Jeff Landry's Cyber Crime Unit has arrested a Lafayette man for possession of child pornography.

Matthew Faulk, 33, was arrested and charged with one count of Pornography Involving Juveniles Under the Age of Thirteen (possession). The arrest was a result of a joint investigation with the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation, Homeland Security Investigations, Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office, and East Feliciana Parish Sheriff's Office.

"My office and I are dedicated to making Louisiana a safer place," Attorney General Landry said. "We will continue to collaborate with our local, state, and federal partners to bring child predators to justice."

Faulk was originally booked into the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center and then transported to the East Feliciana Parish Jail.
