An Izard County man, 37-year-old Gavin R. Winter of Melbourne, has been arrested and charged with 90 felony counts of distributing, possessing, or viewing of matter depicting sexually explicit conduct involving a child.

According to the probable cause affidavit, a special agent with the Arkansas State Police received a cyber tip in mid-August from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The information provided an email address and a phone number of a user having uploaded 51 images to his cloud storage that were child explicit in nature.

A search warrant obtained for the account led to 90 images that were child explicit in nature.

In an interview with Winter, he allegedly said he does look at pornography and did download the images in question.

Winter’s bond is set at $20,000.
