A Jennings man is behind bars after Jeff Davis Parish Sheriff's deputies found multiple images of child pornography on his phone.
Deputies responded to a disturbance at a residence on Elton Drive north of Jennings Friday night involving 29-year-old Joshua Barber who, according to witnesses had fled the scene.
During the investigation, deputies learned that a phone belonging to Barber was located in the residence and contained inappropriate images of a child. A search warrant was obtained and 10 images depicting child pornography were found in the phone.
Throughout the night, deputies continued searching the area for Barber until he was located in the early morning hours of June 6, 2015.
Barber was booked into the Jeff Davis Parish jail, where he is being held without bail, on 10 counts of possession and production of pornography involving juveniles.
The investigation remains open and more charges are expected.
