Monroe Man Arrested for Possession of Pornography Involving Juveniles
Ouachita Parish – In August 2023, Louisiana State Police Special Victim’s Unit (LSP SVU) began an investigation into pornographic images of juveniles downloaded in the Monroe area. During the course of the investigation, it was determined that 46-year-old Kenneth Boland downloaded child pornography involving juveniles.
As the investigation progressed and with the information obtained, LSP SVU secured an arrest warrant from the Ouachita Parish 4th Judicial District Court for possession of pornography involving juveniles.
On November 15, 2023, a search warrant was executed at Boland’s residence. During the search, law enforcement located a USB drive and external hard drive that possessed child pornography belonging to Boland. Boland was arrested and booked into the Ouachita Correctional Center without incident.
The investigation remains active and ongoing. No further information is available at this time.
LSP SVU works to rescue and seek justice for the victims of crimes involving the exploitation of children and the trafficking of humans for sex or labor. The public plays an important role in identifying suspects accused of these crimes and is urged to report criminal or suspicious activity.
