ORAN, MO (KFVS) - An Oran man faces several counts of child pornography possession.

Andrew L. Stroud, 22, is charged with 10 counts of possession of child pornography, each a class B felony.

Scott County Sheriff Rick Walter says the investigation began about two and a half months ago when a task force investigator discovered known child pornography being downloaded on the internet.  The investigation led to a home in Oran where Stroud lived.

Police searched the home and found numerous videos depicting child pornography on a computer.

The Southeast Missouri Cyber Crimes Task Force, Scott County Sheriff's Office and the Poplar Bluff Police Department, were involved in the investigation.

Stroud's bond is set at $15,000.
