A 25-year-old Visalia man has been arrested in connection with a child pornography investigation.
The Fresno County Sheriff's Office says Michael Martinez was taken into custody Wednesday morning after 250 child pornography files and 25 videos of children being sexually abused were found at his home. Authorities say he lived near an elementary school.
Martinez was booked into the Tulare County Jail on charges of possessing child pornography.
The sheriff's office says Martinez was identified during a peer-to-peer software sharing investigation, which was conducted by the Central California Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
