A team of investigators working with the Internet Crimes Against Children unit arrested a 28-year-old man Wednesday and charged him with five felony counts of child exploitation for downloading child pornography, according to an Idaho Attorney General press release.

Investigators arrested James Dixon after receiving a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, suggesting multiple videos and images of children had been downloaded, according to the release.

Dixon is being held in Ada County Jail.
