Florida man faces 100 counts of child pornography in Louisiana

Posted: Updated:

The Louisiana Attorney General's High Technology Crime Unit says a multi-agency undercover operation has led to the arrest of a 51-year-old Florida man accused of possessing more than 100 files of child pornography.

State and federal agents arrested Bruce Wagenstein of Port Saint Lucie, Florida on Wednesday in Port Fourchon, Louisiana, after a forensic review of his computer revealed numerous images and videos depicting child pornography. Wagenstein was booked into the Lafourche Parish Prison and charged with 100 counts of pornography involving juveniles. If convicted, Wagenstein, who faces pending child pornography charges in multiple parishes, could get up to 20 years in prison on each count.

The Attorney General's High Technology Crime Unit, U.S. Homeland Security Investigations, St. Charles Parish Sheriff's Office, Greater Lafourche Port Commission Harbor Police, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection participated in the investigation.

To report suspected cases of Internet crime, contact the Attorney General's High Technology Crime Unit at 1-800-256-4506.
