DELHI TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WKRC) - A Hamilton County corrections officer has been arrested and put on administrative leave after child porn was allegedly found on his computer in Delhi Township. Joshua Yeager faces a count of pandering sexually oriented matter involving a minor.

The investigation began Feb. 5, when investigators with the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation tracked child porn to an IP address. After getting records from Charter Communications, they learned it was assigned to a home on Hickoryknoll Drive.

When investigators served a search warrant at Yeager's home, they say he admitted to downloading the child porn.

The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office said Yeager has been with the department since November 2006. He has been relieved of duty.
