Police arrested a 49-year-old Boise man Wednesday on multiple counts of suspected possession of sexually exploitative material involving children.

Chester Hartman was booked after the Idaho Attorney General’s Internet Crimes Against Children Unit executed a search warrant on June 23.

He remains in custody at the Ada County Jail with bond set at $250,000.

The Ada County Sheriff’s Office and Ada County Prosecutor’s Office assisted the ICAC Unit with the arrest.

Anyone with information regarding the exploitation of children is asked to contact local police, the Attorney General’s ICAC Unit at 208-947-8700, or the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-843-5678.
