SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A convicted sex offender has been arrested in south Dakota on one count of possession of child pornography.

The Argus Leader (https://argusne.ws/1vrJl7s ) reports 40-year-old Mario Castaneda Jr. was arrested after officers followed a lead from a Rapid City internet detective.

Deputy Minnehaha County state’s attorney Randle Sample on Monday said the detective came across an IP address that was keeping and distributing child pornography. Sample says the IP, which is a numeric address given to a computer connected to the Internet, was traced back to Castaneda’s Sioux Falls home.

Authorities say Castaneda’s electronics were seized. Castaneda’s public defender could not be reached.

Castaneda was convicted of sodomy of a child under the age of 12 and indecent acts with a child a decade ago in Kentucky.
