Authorities stated that 18 year old Thinh Dat Nguyen was arrested this week after a widespread cyber sleuth protocol of investigation led them to believe Nguyen was the perpetrator behind a start up network of distributing the child pornography.
After months of tracking the suspect a search warrant was served at Nguyen's home in the 1600 block of Crossmoor Drive Wednesday and found the illicit images on his computer, an arrest report said.
The cybercrime Coalition says that upon entry into the suspect's home they were able to locate at least 100 images of children under the age of 3 performing sex acts on adults in a disturbingly disgusting environment.
Prosecutors believe Nguyen was selling the images to pedophiles on the deep web in various forums where such creepy men and hide behind tor in an attempt to fulfill their demented fantasies.
Nguyen was placed under arrest and faces charges of over 100 counts of possession of Child Pornography, with new charges possible in the future.
Police say Nguyen is now booked into the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center in Gretna under no bond until he faces a judge.
