— Thomas Gale Brown, 61, is in the Ada County Jail after Boise police arrested him Thursday morning.

An investigation by the Idaho Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force resulted in a search warrant served at Brown's Southeast Boise home. Police reportedly found "a number of sexually explicit images involving young boys," according to a press release. Police say there's no sign that any of the boys live in the Treasure Valley.

Brown is charged with 10 counts of felony sexual exploitation of a child. More charges are possible, according to the release.

Police say their investigation is not yet over. They've asked the public for any information regarding Brown's interactions with children. If you have a tip, call non-emergency dispatch at 377-6790.
