OKMULGEE, Oklahoma -- An Okmulgee man was arrested Wednesday, after authorities say more than 100 images of child pornography were found on his computer.

John David McAlister was booked into the Okmulgee County Jail on complaints of aggravated Possession of Child pornography, distribution of child pornography, and violation of the Oklahoma computer crimes act.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says McAlister distributed pictures depicting child pornography to an undercover agent on two occasions.

Several pieces of computer equipment were seized during a search of his Okmulgee home by Okmulgee Sheriff Deputies and OSBI agents.

Investigators say a full forensic examination of McAlister's computer equipment may reveal more pictures and will determine if there were any local child victims.

McAlister's bond was set at $150,000.
