NAVARRO COUNTY, Texas (KWTX) An area man has been charged in a state child pornography investigation.

Roy Jones, 41, is facing nine charges including five counts of possession of child pornography and four counts of possession with intent to promote child pornography.

He remained in the Navarro County Justice Center Wednesday night in lieu of bonds totaling $325,000.

Navarro County Sheriff Elmer Tanner says his criminal investigation and patrol divisions assisted agents from the Texas Attorney General's Office in executing a search warrant Tuesday night in the 7400 block of NW 0150 in Rice.

"Once again, another example of agencies working together to keep our community safe," said Tanner.

"Great job officers."

A second suspect was arrested at the scene for possession of marijuana.
