St. James Parish – On December 7, 2021, Troopers from the Louisiana State Police Bureau of Investigations (LSP BOI) in conjunction with the Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) arrested a Vacherie man after a joint investigation involving child sex abuse material. The investigation revealed 61-year-old George Oubre Jr. was using electronic devices to obtain sexual images of children online. A search warrant was obtained to search Oubre’s residence and investigators located a large amount of explicit images on an electronic device.
Oubre was booked into the St. James Parish Detention Center for possession of child pornography. LSP BOI and the HSI were assisted in this investigation by the St. James Parish Sheriff’s Office. This is an active investigation and additional charges are anticipated.
Across our state, Troopers are working hard with local and federal law enforcement agencies to investigate and combat child exploitation. The public plays an integral role in identifying suspects accused of these crimes, and is strongly urged to report criminal or suspicious activity. The Louisiana State Police online reporting system is available to the public through a convenient and secure reporting form that is submitted to the appropriate investigators.
