Another Illegal Alien Arrested in Louisiana for Internet Crimes Against Children
BATON ROUGE, LA – Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry’s Office has arrested another illegal immigrant for Internet Crimes Against Children.

“Unfortunately, this type of arrest is not new to law enforcement,” said General Landry.  “Just last month, our office arrested another child sexual predator residing in this country illegally. And in the past two months, law enforcement around the capitol region have arrested two illegal aliens wanted in their home countries for murder.”

Nery Wilfredo Lopez Alvarado – 34, illegally residing in Baton Rouge – was arrested for distributing pornography involving juveniles under the age of 13 years old.

“Crimes against children inflict continuous and life-long damage,” said General Landry. “So we will never waver in doing all that we legally can to bring child predators to justice.“

After agents in General Landry’s Cyber Crime Unit received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, they conducted a joint investigation with the Homeland Security Investigations, United States Customs and Border Protection, Federal Bureau of Investigations, and the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office. They later arrested Alvardo and booked him into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.

After being booked, the United States Customs and Border Protection Agency placed a detainer on Alvardo for being illegally in the country.

“Congress must realize the national emergency at our Southern border and support President Trump’s efforts to build the wall,” concluded General Landry. “Their continued failure to secure our border places every American citizen at risk.”  


Coming soon, the attorney's general office seeks to provide a mechanism by which to take online payments for collections.
