Two Region 8 Men Arrested On Computer Child Porn Charges

JONESBORO, AR -- (KAIT) David Mason and Matthew Richardson are both charged with viewing and distributing computer child pornography. 

The arrests follow a joint investigation by Jonesboro Police and Arkansas State Police. Aside from the timing of the arrests, there is no connection between the two.

Thursday afternoon, JPD and ASP investigators served a search warrant in Paragould at the East Court Street home of 25-year-old Matthew Richardson. They came out with Richardson in handcuffs as well as two computers and an 8mm video camera. 

David Mason has plenty of reasons to hide his face. He's not only facing the charges, until his Wednesday arrest he was a police officer in Walnut Ridge. Walnut Ridge Mayor Michelle Rogers says he is no longer with the police department.
