(ABC 6 NEWS) -- A six-month investigation has led to a Rochester man being arrested for allegedly having child porn on his computer.

Police took 22-year-old Dain Eaton in custody after executing a search warrant at his home. They were tipped off by an internet crimes against children task force.

The Twin Cities-based group uses IP and image tracking to investigate cases of child pornography being shared online.

Steve Thompson with the Rochester Police Department says, "Unfortunately it is a typical case. We get these cases from them quite often and so they initiated the investigation in November. They then went back and looked again in April and then contacted us."

The investigation is still ongoing. Eaton is facing felony charges of distributing child pornography.
