Investigation leads to man's arrest in child porn case

Danny+Smith+mugshot.jpgSacramento County sheriff's detectives have arrested a 50-year-old man on suspicion of distributing child pornography.

Danny R. Smith (pictured) was booked into Sacramento County Jail this afternoon and is being held on $50,000 bail.

The Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force received information that Smith was trading files of child pornography via the Internet, according to a Sheriff's Department news release. A federal search warrant was served at Smith's residence in the 2000 block of Bluebird Lane in the Arden Arcade area. Detectives discovered, however, that Smith had recently moved and tracked him to Citrus Heights, where he was taken into custody.

Detectives found that Smith, who lived alone, had images of child pornography on his computer, according to the news release.

Anyone with information pertaining to the case is asked to call the High-Tech Crimes Task Force at (916) 874-3002.
