VIDALIA, La. (KNOE) - The Concordia Parish Sheriff’s Office has arrested a central Louisiana man who is accused of indecent behavior with juveniles and more.

The CPSO Cyber Crime Unit began an investigation into an adult suspect who they say initiated contact with what he believed to be a minor. The suspect, Justin W. Rachal, 30, of Deville, allegedly engaged in “extremely lewd dialogue, transmitted sexually explicit photos of himself and attempted to travel in order to meet,” CPSO said.

Warrants were obtained for Rachal’s arrest and he was taken into custody by the Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Marshal’s Office.

Rachal has been charged with indecent behavior with juveniles and computer-aided solicitation of a minor.
