Avoyelles Parish– In July 2022, Louisiana State Police Special Victim’s Unit (LSP SVU) began an investigation into the computer aided solicitation of a juvenile. During the course of the investigation, it was determined that the suspect was communicating with a juvenile by sharing explicit images on social media platforms.
Earlier today, LSP SVU conducted an operation and identified the suspect as 20-year-old Tracey Naquin, of Plaucheville. As a result of the investigation and information obtained, arrest warrants were obtained for Naquin. The arrest warrants were issued for Computer Aided Solicitation of a Minor, Indecent Behavior with a Juvenile, and Contributing to the Delinquency of a Juvenile. After locating Naquin, he was arrested and booked into the Avoyelles Parish Jail.
At the time of his arrest, Naquin was employed with the Louisiana Department of Corrections, Raymond Laborde Correctional Center in Cottonport. Naquin was employed in April 2021 and following his arrest, he resigned his position as Corrections Master Sergeant. Naquin was off-duty while communicating with the juvenile. The investigation remains active and ongoing. No further information is available at this time.
LSP SVU works to rescue and seek justice for the victims of crimes involving the exploitation of children and the trafficking of humans for sex or labor. The public plays an important role in identifying suspects accused of these crimes and is urged to report criminal or suspicious activity. The Louisiana State Police online reporting system is available to the public through an anonymous reporting form that is submitted to the appropriate investigators.
