DES MOINES, Iowa — Officers have arrested a Des Moines man after reportedly finding more than 100 images of child pornography on his computer.

Fifty-one-year-old Eugene Peniston is charged with sexual exploitation of a minor. Police received a tip about Peniston from the National Center for Missing and Exploited children in July.

Officials say an investigator met with Peniston on July 25th and seized his laptop. A warrant was issued for his arrest earlier this week and he was taken into custody.

Peniston is due in court next week.
