Investigators suspect some of the victims are local children.
A Chillicothe man has been arrested on child pornography charges, and the Attorney General says some of the victims may be local. 48-year-old William Noble was arrested, Tuesday, following a search warrant at his North Pohlman Road home.
Attorney General Mike DeWine says agents began investigating Noble in September: "Agents confiscated several computers and other media devices from the suspect's home, and those will all be thoroughly analyzed."
"An initial review of the evidence leads us to believe that this man may have been in possession of hundreds of photographs and videos," said DeWine.
Investigators also have reason to believe that some of the evidence may contain images of local children taken without their knowledge.
"We are asking parents in Chillicothe to talk with their children and find out if they have had any contact with this suspect," said DeWine.
Noble is currently in the Ross County Jail on eight charges of pandering obscenity involving a minor.
