AUSTIN – A Pflugerville man was arrested on two counts of possession of child pornography, a third-degree felony, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced Wednesday.

Officials said an investigation into Kenneth Ray Ward, 54, began after the Child Exploitation Unit received a tip that Ward uploaded child pornography to a cloud storage account.

Investigators said a search of his home found images of child porn on his tablet. A desktop computer and smartphone were also confiscated and will be examined by the Digital Forensics Unit.

Ward faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
