Child porn probe leads to Spokane man

A 44-year-old man was arrested Thursday after police connected him to hundred of images of child pornography.

Darrel W. Monzingo was taken into custody at his home at 3403 E. Fairview Ave., after detectives served a search warrant there about 9 a.m.

Spokane police Detective Jan Pofacher developed Monzingo as a suspect after Colorado detectives said they'd shared files with a Spokane man, according to a news release.

Investigators found pornographic videos and photos on Monzingo’s computers. His home is about a block from an elementary school.

Now he’s in jail on one count of possession of child pornography. Police say more charges are expected.
