MEDINA -- A 37-year-old man has been arrested after authorities say they found child pornography on his computer.

The Medina Police Department says James McByrne Jr. was charged with one count of pandering sexually oriented matter involving a minor, a fourth-degree felony.

Police say the pornography was discovered after a team of detectives executed a search warrant at McByrne's residence on South Court Street in Medina and seized computer equipment on Monday.

"We make the resolution of this kind of case a top priority," said Medina Police Chief Patrick Berarducci, in a press release. "This was a great job by our detectives and their partners, the Ohio Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force."

McByrne is being held at the Medina County Jail.

Additional charges are expected when the case is presented to a grand jury.

An investigation of the situation is ongoing.
