LOGAN — Police have arrested a 20-year-old man on suspicion of possessing child pornography. Kaleb A. Witherspoon was booked Thursday into the Cache County Jail where he is being held on $100,000 bail.

Logan City Police Assistant Chief Jeff Simmons said officers obtained a warrant to search Witherspoon’s residence after receiving a tip. They searched his home Thursday morning and located several electronic devices that were seized as evidence. Officers also located drug paraphernalia and weapons.

Witherspoon was questioned by officers and later taken into custody. He was booked into jail on suspicion of sexual exploitation of a minor.

Simmons said detectives aren’t sure yet the amount of pornographic material Witherspoon had in his possession and where it came from. Detectives are still working through the evidence.

Witherspoon is expected to be arraigned on formal charges in 1st District Court next week.
