TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A Terre Haute man is in police custody on child porn charges.

Earlier in the week, police arrested 21-year-old Jacob Sparks.

They say they'd gotten information that Sparks was downloading child pornography.

After an investigation, they say they found several videos in his home involving children under the age of 12.

He faces multiple charges, including 10 counts of possession of child pornography and child exploitation.

Police say several agencies worked as part of Indiana's Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce to make this arrest.
