ST. MARTINVILLE, La. (KLFY) — A Breaux Bridge man was arrested on Tuesday after St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s deputies say they received a number of “sexually explicit private messages, videos, and photos” on their Facebook page.

Roy Sturgis, 28, of Breaux Bridge, faces a charge of obscenity after he was booked into the St. Martin Parish Correctional Center without bond.

Capt. Ginny Higgins said the department’s Facebook page started receiving the lewd media on Nov. 19 shortly before 10:30 p.m. An investigation followed, resulting in an arrest warrant being issued.

“Although we encourage interaction from the public on our Facebook, please note that this type of communication will not be tolerated,” stated Higgins.
