BATON ROUGE, LA – Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry today announced the arrest of an illegal alien for internet crimes against children.

“Our office will continue to be a model agency in arresting illegal criminals and stopping them from exploiting our State’s children,” said General Landry. “We will keep working closely with our local, state, and federal partners to make our streets safer by bringing child predators to justice.”

Gustavo Ramos Castro, an illegal immigrant living in Lafayette, was arrested on one count of Indecent Behavior with Juveniles and one count of Computer Aided Solicitation of a Minor. He was arrested and booked into the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center as a result of a joint investigation between the Louisiana Bureau of Investigations Cyber Crime Unit, Homeland Security Investigations, the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office, and the Lafayette Police Department. An ICE detainer has been placed on Castro, which holds him for immigration enforcement review.

“From changing Lafayette’s sanctuary policies to assisting us in this arrest, Sheriff Garber and his team are working hard to fight illegal immigration and bring criminals to justice,” said General Landry. “It is important for all elected officials to recognize the importance of cooperating with federal authorities to root out illegal immigration.”

Attorney General Jeff Landry’s Cyber Crime Unit has investigated thousands of computer crimes that have victimized children from infants to 16 years of age. To report child exploitation, call the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation at 800-256-4506.
