Ceres police arrested a 35-year-old Turlock man on Thursday on charges of possession of child pornography.
Adam Henry was arrested as the result of search warrants that were served by officers from Ceres, Turlock, and Modesto police departments at Henry's residence and place of employment.
Ceres Police Sgt. Jose Berber would not comment any further on the case, saying only that the investigation is ongoing and is to be turned over to the District Attorney's office for prosecution.
It is not known how Ceres police got involved in the case nor where Henry is employed.
Mere possession of pornograhic images involving those under the age of 18 is illegal because of federal law. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that child pornography is "legally obscene," a term that refers to offensive or violent forms of pornography that have been declared to be outside the protections of the First Amendment.
