DEXTER, MO (KFVS) - A Dexter man is accused of possessing child pornography.

According to the probable cause statement, Lewis's wife Kristina came home to find Arlie asleep on the couch with their two-year-old daughter.  She noticed a picture of a nude female on his phone.

Kristina told police they went to bed, but she couldn't sleep so she looked at Arlie's phone again and found nude pictures of him and some pornographic pictures including toddlers and 7 or 8 year olds.

Police seized Arlie's phone and computer and found 27 images of a female child between the ages of 3 to 8 years old engaging in explicit sexual contact with an adult male.

Police seized Arlie's phone and computer.  Police also found a wooden dugout with marijuana residue, marijuana seeds, and a glass marijuana smoking pipe.

Lewis's bond is set at $12,500.
