BATON ROUGE, LA – Attorney General Jeff Landry's Office has arrested two Jefferson Parish men on multiple charges of child pornography.

Johnathan Martinez, 31 of Gretna
, was arrested on five counts of Sexual Abuse Images/Videos of Children (under 13). He was booked into the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center following an investigation by the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation (LBI) Cyber Crime Unit, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), and the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office (JPSO).  

Jagon Eldridge, 44 of Westwego
, was arrested on 17 counts of Sexual Abuse Images/Videos of Children (under 13) and 12 counts of Sexual Abuse Images/Videos of Children (over 13, but still minor).  He was booked into the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center following an investigation by the LBI Cyber Crime Unit, the LBI Violent Crimes Unit, HSI, and the JPSO.
