BELFAIR, Wash. (AP) - A prominent Mason County man has been arrested on suspicion of possessing child pornography.

The Kitsap Sun reports (https://bit.ly/1hm0z0q) that 52-year-old Frank Edward McDonald is a volunteer fire captain and an elected commissioner of the Mason County Public Hospital district. His daytime job is at Seattle Public Utilities.

McDonald made his initial court appearance Friday.

Investigators were led to McDonald after receiving a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that in December a person in Belfair had twice uploaded images of minors engaged in explicit conduct from the Internet to a mobile device. The tip included a specific Verizon IP address registered to McDonald.

Investigators seized two mobile phones as well as other electronic equipment.
