MANSFIELD, OH (WOIO) -

A 29-year-old man was arrested Wednesday in Mansfield for allegedly pandering pornography involving a minor, a second degree felony.

Mitchell A. Owens was arrested after police found obscene material involving minors was being downloaded and disseminated from a home on Dianewood Drive. During a search warrant of the house, police collected evidence and numerous illegal weapons.

Owens was booked at the Richland County Jail.

"This was great work done by everyone involved," said Lt. Robert Skropits in a statement. "We take the safety of our citizens seriously, especially our young citizens, and will not tolerate any of them being prayed upon."
