 COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- A central Missouri man is jailed after employees of a computer repair shop reported finding child pornography on his computer.

KMIZ-TV reports the Boone County sheriff’s department arrested the 67-year-old Columbia man on Monday.

Authorities say the man took his computer to a shop for repairs in June. Employees there contacted Columbia police after coming across images of child porn.

Sheriff’s investigators say they found more than 25,000 pornographic images on the computer. They say a search of the man’s home turned up a new computer that also had child porn.

No charges had been filed as of Monday afternoon while the suspect remained in the Boone County Jail.
