WACO, TX — A Waco man is in the McLennan County Jail for possession of child pornography with intent to promote.

Kent Swarts, 75, was arrested on Wednesday for three counts of possession of child porn by the attorney general's office.

This case is the result of a NCMEC CyberTipline Report involving the upload and sharing of child pornography via an email account.

CEU investigators executed a search warrant at Swarts’ residence and seized numerous digital storage devices to be examined by the Digital Forensics Unit. In an interview, Swarts confessed to downloading and sharing child pornography.

He was transported to the McLennan County jail without incident. He was released on a $45,000 bond on Thursday.
