      Man, 26, arrested for possession of child pornography

      26-year-old Alexander Jimenez III was arrested by the Amarillo Police Department Friday for possession or promotion of child pornography.

      According to APD the case started after the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children forwarded information to the Dallas Police Department's Child Exploitation Unit. DPD began an investigation which led them to establish criminal activity and possession of child pornography that was linked to a computer used to download child pornography in Amarillo.

      On Friday, APD Crimes Against Persons detectives executed a search warrant of an apartment in the 2700 block of Virginia. APD said the suspect was not home during the search however investigators seized computers, DVDs and other storage media, a cell phone and cameras. APD officers contacted the suspect and took him to the Amarillo Police Department for questioning.

      Jimenez was later booked into the Potter County Detention Center after detectives completed further investigation.
