JONESBORO, Ark. – A man is suspected of trafficking child pornography and he’s facing a serious charge because of it.

Investigators with the Jonesboro Police Department Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Division arrested Jason A. Wilkins, 42, of Jonesboro for Distributing, Possessing, or Viewing of Matter Depicting Sexually Explicit Conduct Involving a Child.

The three week long investigation began after Wilkins was brought to the attention of the ICAC Investigators through his on line activities. A substantial amount of computer hardware that contained child pornography was collected as evidence from Wilkins’ home, JPD said in a press release.
