— Prosecutors classified a Boise man as an “extreme danger” during his Friday afternoon arraignment.

Kevin Royce McCullough, 22, was arrested Thursday after a search of his West Brennen Street home turned up child pornography, police said.

Boise police detectives and members of the Idaho Crimes against Children Task Force said they found several files on a computer that contained illegal material.

McCullough was charged with five counts of possessing sexually exploitative material.

A task force investigation had already allegedly traced exploitive materials to the house, officials said, which led to the search warrant.

Prosecutors said that McCullough had downloaded and shared illegal materials. Prosecutors also said he told police that he had been viewing child pornography for years and that he was attracted to prepubescent children.

Investigators said there is no evidence that any of the child victims in the pornographic materials are local.

At the video arraignment Friday broadcast from the Ada County Jail, McCullough repeatedly looked down, shook his head, and covered his face with his hands.

The judge set a bond of $250,000 and prohibited McCullough from having contact with minors unless an adult 30 or older is present if he does get released on bond.
