QUEEN CREEK, Ariz. -- An 18-year-old is behind bars in Pinal County after he was allegedly found to be in possession of several hundred images of child pornography.

Phoenix police said on Wednesday the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force served a search warrant at a home near Ocotillo and Ironwood roads while conducting an investigation into the trafficking of sexual images featuring minors.

Police said they arrested 18-year-old Jacob Christopher Black after he admitted to owning a computer that was used to download child pornography.

Investigators believe there are hundreds of illegal images on Black’s computer.

Black was subsequently booked into jail on 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.
