After learning of the information, Authorities and Agents proceeded to an address in the 300 block of Cleveland Street, where a search warrant of the residence was conducted and Chandlar David Rodenkirch was taken into custody without incident. Chandlar David Rodenkirch was arrested on 22 counts of Possession of Pornography involving Juveniles Under the age of 13, and was later jailed at the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Complex.
