SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) – Caddo Sheriff's deputies have seized computers and other evidence from a Highland home following the arrest of a man accused of sex crimes involving children. 

57-year-old Lawrence A. Brown of  the 2000 blk of Highland Avenue is charged with two counts of indecent behavior, and molestation of a juvenile. 

Caddo Sheriff's Department spokesperson Cindy Chadwick says Brown has been under investigation since September after a woman reported that two of her family members, ages 12 and 13, were victimized by Brown. Brown was a neighbor and friend of the family.

The Caddo Sheriff's Office executed a search warrant at Brown's residence today and seized computer equipment, a large number of home-made DVDs, and other materials. A forensic exam of one hard drive confirmed the presence of child pornography. The images did not involve the 12- or 13-year-old complainants.    

According to a check of the Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office Sex Offender Registry, Brown is not a registered sex offender. 

Brown was arrested by Caddo Sheriff's Detectives Robert Greer and Mickey McDaniel.  More charges in this case are expected.
