A Boise man faces ten felony counts of sexual exploitation of a child after police say they find “several thousand” child porn images in his possession.

Detectives began investigated Gregory Pelton, 33, back in March, when they received an anonymous tip that someone living at home in the area of Clover Drive and State Street in Boise may have sexually-explicit electronic images. 

Officers say they found images involving children ranging in age from two-years-old to adolescents. 

“Evidence does not indicate that any of the images involved local children,” said a BPD press release.

Pelton was arrested Thursday and booked into the Ada County Jail late Thursday morning.

He’s scheduled to make his initial court appearance Friday.
