An employee with Ochiltree County has been arrested following an investigation into child pornography claims.

According to Ochiltree County Sheriff Terry Bouchard, their office learned of a local person who may be in possession of child pornography and learned early in the investigation that the suspect was a County employee. That person was identified as 59-year-old James Kenneth Crawley.

Bouchard said his office contacted The Texas Rangers immediately and requested that their agency take over the case. The Texas Rangers then contacted the FBI in Amarillo. Both agencies are continuing to investigate the case.

Crawley was arrested and booked into the Ochiltree County jail Thursday morning as a result of the investigation. Right now, Crawley is in custody awaiting arraignment.
