Walter Sologaistoa, 43, 69 Brittany Drive, Kenner, was booked into Parish Prison Friday on 10 counts of distributing pornography involving juveniles, according to an affidavit of probable cause.

During an investigation by the Louisiana Attorney General’s Office, authorities discovered multiple pornographic video files on Sologaistoa’s home computer, the affidavit says.

Smith first reported her 2013 Honda motorcycle stolen to the Sheriff’s Office on May 30, according to an affidavit of probable cause.
