(INDIANAPOLIS) - Greenwood police officers arrested a Marion County Sheriff's Office deputy on Friday after police say they discovered he had child pornography on his home computer.

Benjamin Farson, 29, has been with the Marion County Sheriff's Office for three years. His arrest prompted his termination by the department.

The Greenwood Police Department began investigating Farson on Sept. 14. Investigators said Farson distributed child porn from his Johnson County home.

Officers arrested Farson while he was working at the Arrestee Processing Center in Indianapolis. He was questioned at the Marion County Jail before being taken to the Johnson County Jail.

Marion County Sheriff's Office officials said Farson did not commit any crimes while on duty.
