Posted: Apr 8, 2022 5:39 PM

Bossier Sheriff’s detectives arrested a local man for possessing and distributing pornography involving juveniles.

Brian Timothy Noel, 42, of the 100 block of Salmon Street in Haughton, was being investigated by detectives for viewing and downloading child sexual abuse images. A search warrant was obtained and executed at his home, where detectives found Noel in possession of five images depicting child sexual abuse of prepubescent juveniles on his phone. The images were hidden in a social media app. During their investigation detectives also discovered that Noel shared the images via that social media app and his personal email account.

Noel was taken to the detective’s office where he admitted to possessing and distributing the images investigators discovered on his phone. Noel was arrested and charged with five counts of Pornography Involving Juveniles and three counts of Distribution of Pornography Involving Juveniles. He was transported to the Bossier Max.

This matter is still under investigation. Detectives with the Bossier Sheriff’s Office continue to aggressively investigate child sexual abuse cases with the ICAC team, the Attorney General’s Office, and with the aid of the latest technology. They encourage anyone with information regarding this crime or any other crimes against children to contact the Bossier Sheriff’s Office at (318) 965-2203.

No bond has been set in this case.
