OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) - An Overland Park analyst for a regional drug interdiction program has pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography.

The Kansas City Star (http://bit.ly/1eOJ7UR ) reports 34-year-old Matthew J. Barnes pleaded guilty Monday as part of a plea agreement. According to the plea agreement, an investigation into Barnes began in 2012.

A detective assigned to the FBI Cyber Crimes Task Force was using peer-to-peer file sharing software to look for online child porn when the detective’s computer found another computer that shared six images of child pornography and “child erotica.”

The detective traced the images to a Drug Enforcement Agency office, where officials helped determine that the computer was assigned to Barnes.

The plea agreement says Barnes was a member of the Missouri National Guard working as an analyst for the Midwest High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas program.
