MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Texas -

A former Harris County sheriff's deputy has been arrested on child pornography charges.

David Wayne Land, 42, has been charged with three counts of possession with intent to promote child pornography.

Montgomery County Precinct 4 deputy constables arrested Land at his home in Porter on Monday.

Investigators said they searched Land's home and found several hundred images of child pornography on Land's hard drive. The victims appeared to be 3 to 8 years old, officials said.

Land could face more charges after computers seized from his home are analyzed, investigators said.

Land was booked into the Montgomery County Jail with bond set at $100,000.
