LAMPASAS, Texas (KWTX) A Central Texas teen was arrested Thursday on a child pornography charge after a months-long investigation.

Lampasas Police Department investigator Sgt. Tim Ryan said Friday afternoon the investigation into Jaime Rodriguez Villa, 17, began late in the summer of 2018.

Ryan said over the course of the investigation they were able to gather enough evidence to get a warrant to search Villa’s home and arrest him.

The teen was taken into custody at a home in the 500 block of Old Georgetown Road just after 2:30 p.m.

While searching the home, Ryan said investigators found several images of child pornography, all based on Villa’s search electronic history.

Investigators seized electronics found inside the home.

Some of the children were in their teens, while others were pre-pubescent, Ryan said.

Additional charges could be filed.
