TULSA, Oklahoma - Editor's note: The Tulsa County jail lists Bookout's home address as Broken Arrow, but the OSBI lists it as Tulsa. News On 6 has decided to refer to him as a Tulsa resident.
A 25-year-old Tulsa man was arrested Tuesday night following an undercover operation into the sharing of child pornography over the Internet.
The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation's Crimes Against Children unit arrested Matthew Bookout on two criminal warrants.

He was arrested at a Tulsa home in the 8700 block of South Lakewood by Tulsa Police and OSBI agents.
