National Guardsman from Minnesota arrested for child porn possession in California

The 18-year-old is being held on a $100,000 bail.

An 18-year-old National Guardsman from Minnesota has been arrested on suspicion of possessing child pornography.

The teenager from Fridley was arrested in Fort Irwin, where he is based with the U.S. Army National Guard, the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department announced last Wednesday, Aug. 5.

It follows an investigation by two sheriff's departments, Specialized Investigations Division Crimes Against Children Detail (CAC), and the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command.

"Through investigation, investigators determined [the suspect] was in possession of child pornography," the sheriff's office says, with the teen booked into the High Desert Detention Center with bail set at $100,000.

BMTN doesn't typically name suspects until they have been charged with a crime.
