Norwalk police arrested a local man Sunday night after conducting an almost month-long investigation involving the possession of child pornography.

Officers seized three computers and "all sorts of various pornographic materials" when using a search warrant at the 213 W. Main Street home of David R. Power, Detective Sgt. Todd Temple said.

"We have to get another search warrant for (the) computers," Temple added.

Power was charged with unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, a third-degree felony, and illegal use of a minor in a nudity-oriented material or performance, a second-degree felony.

Norwalk Assistant Law Director T. Douglas Clifford said the victim, a 16-year-old boy, reportedly had been victimized over the last two years. He declined to say how Power knew the boy.

"There may be more charges forthcoming," Clifford added.

Temple said he expects more charges to be filed against Power once the computers have been analyzed by a specialist. Results are pending.

Power was booked into the Huron County Jail at 1 a.m. today, a corrections officer said. He is awaiting a Norwalk Municipal Court bond hearing.
