A 79-year-old former Secretary of State employee has been arrested for possession of child pornography on his state issued computer. Trooper Michael Reichardt with State Police says they were contacted by the Secretary of State’s Office reporting that Bruce Barron of Farmerville had suspicious activity on his work computer.

“So after we did our examination of the hard drive we were able to locate some child pornography on the computer. Bruce Baron of Farmerville was arrested.”

Reichardt says Barron has been charged with one count of distribution of pornography involving juveniles. He says Barron’s bond was set at $25,000.

“This is an ongoing investigation, further charges are pending of course.”

Reichardt says Barron was booked into the Union Parish Correctional Center. He says the department also took immediate action against Barron. 

“Obviously he was terminated as soon as this was located, so he is no longer an employee of the Secretary of State.”
