BATON ROUGE, LA (WVLA/WGMB)– A Livingston Parish man has been arrested as a part of an investigation by the FBI.

Details are limited but here is what we know.

Randy Miller Jr. of Denham Springs was arrested Tuesday morning and has been charged with 500 counts of pornography involving a juvenile under the age of 13.

The arrest was a result of a joint investigation with the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation, Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office, East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office, Louisiana State Police, Homeland Security Investigations, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms.

A source says that the FBI was outside of his home Tuesday morning.

The AG’s office released the following statement surrounding the arrest:

Child pornography is a dreadful crime that inflicts lifelong damage to the victims. So I applaud my office and our law enforcement partners for finding and arresting the despicable people who possess, distribute, and produce these horrific sexual abuse images and videos.”
