If there’s not a funny uncle farm in Grand Isle, you gotta wonder if Patrick Walsh “hangs [his] out” with Jerry Dantin, Camardelle and Euris Dubois. What a bunch of “jerks”
A Grand Isle man who was taking pictures of children at Sunday’s Krewe of Dionysus parade in Slidell has been arrested on several counts of possessing child pornography, police announced.
Patrick Walsh, 66, was spotted taking pictures of girls 5- to 10-years-old along the parade route and was stopped and questioned by a state Alcohol and Tobacco Control agent, Slidell Police Chief Randy Smith said Friday at a news conference. After further investigation, officers found several sexually explicit images of children on a computer inside Walsh’s van, as a 9mm handgun and rope, Smith said.
A search of Walsh’s home in Grand Isle uncovered encrypted discs as well as more graphic images of children, including some that were stored in a hidden room, Smith said.
Police believe that several of the sexually explicit photos had been taken by Walsh, while others apparently were downloaded from the Internet. However, no local victims have been identified, Smith said.
Is it even safe to have children living in Grand Isle?
