MCMINNVILLE, Ore. (KOIN) — A 50-year-old McMinnville man was arrested Thursday for possession of child porn.

Police say they started investigating Clayton Smith in mid-January when they received a report from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The agency reported that a local computer address was being used to share and receive pornographic images. Some of those images included children.

Police discovered the address belonged to Smith and arrested him on 10 counts of encouraging child sex abuse. He is in the Yamhill County Correctional Facility until his arraignment.
