A Pendleton County man has been arrested on child pornography charges.
Roy D. Felty, 36, faces 18 counts of possession and 12 counts of distribution of matter portraying a sex performance by a minor, all felonies.
State police said in a news release that their Electronic Crime Branch began investigating Felty after they discovered him online sharing images of "prepubescent children engaged in sexual acts."
They executed a search warrant at his home Thursday and seized "equipment used to facilitate the crime."
Felty was arrested Thursday afternoon and taken to the Boone County Jail.
