A Houma man is behind bars after investigators from the Louisiana State Police Special Victims Unit (LSP-SVU) determined he was distributing of child pornography images online.

Friday, LSP investigators arrested 41-year-old Todd Giles for charges of possession and distribution of child pornography and narcotics possession.

In October 2018, agents from the LSP-SVU/Shreveport Field Office began an investigation into the distribution of child pornography images online.

Through the course of the investigation, SVU determined the images were coming from an address in Houma.

SVU Investigators and members of the Houma Police Department executed a search warrant this Friday morning at Giles’ residence and numerous electronic devices were seized. Giles also was found to be in possession of narcotics during the course of the search.

Giles was arrested and charged with 200 counts of possession of pornography involving juveniles, 18 counts of distribution of pornography involving juveniles, possession of marijuana, and possession of methamphetamine.

He was booked into the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Center.

The LSP Special Victims Unit works in partnership with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies to combat child exploitation and investigate child and adult sex and labor trafficking across Louisiana.

The public plays an integral role in identifying suspects accused of these crimes and is strongly urged to report criminal or suspicious activity.
