DULUTH, MN-- A Duluth man was arrested Friday after police found and seized multiple devices containing child pornography.

According to a report, police conducted a search warrant on the 800 North block of 57th Ave West after receiving a “Cybertip” from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC).

Authorities seized more than 20 electronic devices.

Police said some of those devices contained a large number of images and videos of suspected child sexual abuse material.

Investigators with the Lake Superior Forensic Technology and Internet Crimes Against Children (LSFT &ICAC) Task Force, the Duluth Police Department, and Homeland Security Investigations worked together on the case.

The 50-year-old suspect is currently at the St. Louis County Jail on pending charges of eight counts of Pornographic Work Involving Minors (under the age of 13).

Duluth Police are reminding parents to monitor activity while using the internet and social media sites.
