On Tuesday, detectives executed a search warrant on a residence in Snohomish and ultimately arrested the resident.  During the search warrant, detectives seized multiple digital media devices from the residence.  A forensic preview of some of these devices confirmed the presences of child porn images, the State Patrol said.

The investigation is ongoing and additional charges are possible.
