(ABC 6 News) – The Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force assisted local authorities in the arrest of a Rochester man, who has since been charged with possession and dissemination of child pornography.

Anthony Vandenhemel , age 29, was arrested after both Olmsted County officials and Rochester Police conducted a search warrant at a home in the 4100 block of Manor View Drive NW in Rochester.  Authorities say they found 795 images of what’s believed to be child pornography on a computer at the residence. Officials are continuing to search all storage devices at the home for more images.

Captain Scott Behrns with the Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office tells ABC 6 News, Vandenhemel may face more changes as they continue to investigate.
