JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -

A Jefferson City man was arrested Tuesday on child pornography charges.

According to the Boone County Sheriff's Department Cyber Crimes Task Force, 27-year-old Johnathan Lee Cox was arrested for first-degree promoting child pornography.

Investigators say they download child porn from a Jefferson City-area computer in August and traced the files to Cox's home.

On Tuesday, Cyber Crimes Task Force investigators and Jefferson City police searched his home and seized a computer and other electronic media.

Cox was arrested and taken to the Cole County Jail.
