A man with child pornography on his home computer in Clover was arrested Friday by the York County Sheriffs Office.
Hugh Douglas Butler, 53, is charged with 16 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor- 3rd degree, according to a sheriffs office release.
Butler admitted to police Thursday that he might have images on his computer of child pornography, according to a sheriffs office police report.
Two detectives went to Butlers house in Clover Thursday morning after receiving a tip that he may have sexual pictures of children and was possibly distributing them, the report states. They searched his external hard drive, flash drive and two computers and found dozens pornographic images of children as young as 6- to 9-years-old engaging in sex acts, according to the report and arrest warrants.
After detectives examined the files to determine how many charges to file, Butler was arrested Friday afternoon and will be booked at the Moss Justice Center in York.
A State Law Enforcement Division background check shows that Butler has been arrested twice before in Marlboro County on charges of burglary and manufacturing marijuana.
