Man arrested on child porn charges

By Katherine Wartell

A 35-year-old Manhattan man was arrested for allegedly downloading or trading child pornography following an ongoing investigation into offenders who exploit children in the Riley County area.

Officers arrested Chad Anderson Smith, 1027 Yuma St., Apt. 1, at his apartment on Thursday for the sexual exploitation of a child.

The arrest resulted from investigations by an RCPD taskforce created to target users and traders of child pornography, Lt. Josh Kyle said.

He said that in 2010, the RCPD became a member of the Kansas chapter of Internet Crimes Against Children, a national organization that targets child offenders.

Smith was released from the Riley County Jail on $5,000 bond.
