MCMINNVILLE, OR (KPTV) -

A McMinnville man was arrested in connection with a child pornography investigation.

Detectives served a search warrant at a home on the 600 block of Southwest Brockwood Avenue on Thursday.

The investigation began in mid-January when the McMinnville Police Department received a report from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children about a local computer address that was being used for sharing and receiving pornographic images of children.

McMinnville detectives completed several follow-up steps to verify the location and identity of the computer user.

The suspect was identified as 50-year-old Clayton Christopher Smith.

Smith was arrested Thursday on 10 counts of first-degree encouraging child sex abuse.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call Detective Brian McMullen at 503-435-5618 or the McMinnville Police Department tip line at 503-434-2337.
