LIVINGSTON, TX (KTRE) -

A multi-agency investigation by county and state law enforcement agencies resulted in the arrest of a Livingston man who allegedly had approximately 100 images of child pornography involving boys and girls between the ages of 8 and 15 Thursday afternoon.

Joshua David Fleet, 33, is still being held in the Polk County Jail on four counts of second-degree felony possession/distribution of child pornography charge. His bail has been set at $25,000.

The investigation was conducted by the Polk County Sheriff's Office, the Texas Department of Public Safety Criminal Investigation Division, and the Pct. 4 Constable's Office in Montgomery County, according to a press release.

At approximately 1:30 p.m. Thursday, officers from all three law enforcement agencies executed a search warrant on Fleet's residence in the 1600 block of FM 3277 in Livingston. Because he is unemployed, Fleet was home when the officers served the warrant.

"Fleet admitted downloading and making images of child pornography available to others," the press release stated. "A forensic triage of Fleet's computer revealed around 100 images of child pornography involving male and female children, ranging in age from approximately 6, to approximately 15 years old."

According to the press release, Fleet told the investigators that his fascination with child pornography involving children around the age of 13 started when he was 17 and first viewed some of the illegal images.
