UPDATE:

QUITMAN, La. (KNOE 8 News) - Jackson Parish Sheriff Andy Brown confirms that his department assisted in the arrest of Chris Nixon on Monday.

Jackson Parish Sheriff officials have identified 2 victims in relation to the case.

No charges have been filed in Jackson Parish against Nixon, but Brown says after follow up investigations in the case, the sheriff's office will seek more charges in the parish.

Brown confirmed Nixon is being held in the Union Parish Detention Center because the Jackson Parish Detention Center is not certified to hold those facing federal charges.  

Sheriff Brown said that Nixon was asked to come to the courthouse in Jonesboro where he was arrested without incident by ICE agents.  Nixon lives in North Hodge, and according to his Facebook page graduated in 2010 from Quitman High School.

Nixon is facing Production of Child Pornography charges.  He is set for a detention hearing and preliminary examination on Thursday in Monroe.

ORIGINAL STORY:

MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - KNOE 8 News has learned that Chris Nixon was arrested and appeared in federal court on Tuesday in connection with a child pornography arrest in Jonesboro.

The suspect was arrested Monday evening at a residence near Jonesboro, LA after HSI received nearly 50 tips from the public via the HSI Tip Line.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) put out a call Monday afternoon seeking the public's help in identifying the suspect they referred to as "John Doe," and possibly rescue a young victim they believed could be with him.

They said evidence indicated the suspect and/or the young victim might have been living in or travel to the Shreveport and/or Jonesboro areas. A "John Doe" arrest warrant was issued for the suspect in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana.

Officials at Shreveport Federal Court say that Nixon has been charged with Production of Child Pornography.

There was an oral motion in the hearing by prosecutors for detention.  In essence, attorneys were arguing for a judge to not set bond in the case.

Nixon is set to appear again in federal court on a detention hearing on Thursday in Monroe.

We have a reporter on the scene in the Quitman/Jonesboro area and we'll have full coverage Tuesday at 5, 6, and 10.
