A 27-year-old Mansura man was arrested for distribution of child pornography on Wednesday. Dustin Novo is being held at the Avoyelles Parish Detention Center on a 100,000 dollar bond. State Police spokesperson Scott Moreau says deputies were tipped off about a month ago.

 

A warrant for Novo’s residence was served, and after a search of the premises, he was arrested and charged.

 

Moreau says is encouraging anyone with information about possible cases of child pornography should report it authorities.

 Louisiana officials say DNA links an Avoyelles Parish inmate to a rape 20 years ago.

Forty-one-year-old Lorenoza Danela Carlos is serving 20 years for a holdup committed in 2004. KPLC-TV reports that he was arrested Nov. 15 on a charge of aggravated rape. That attack was in Lake Charles in 1997. Deputy Chief Mark Kraus says Lake Charles police began re-investigating the case in May.
