KEMPNER, TX — A Lampasas County man was arrested after investigators said he was in possession of child porn.

Attoney General Ken Paxton said that his Child Exploitation Unit arrested 53-year-old John Walter Sickles.

A report from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children said a file of child porn had been uploaded on social media, leading to Sickles.

During a search of his home, investigators found multiple digital storage devices, which will be investigated by the Digital Forensics Unit. The Lampasas County Sheriff's Office also assisted and are conducting a narcotics investigation after finding a substance believed to be meth in Sickles' home.
