ROELAND PARK, Kan. -- Federal authorities have charged a Roeland Park man with producing child pornography. Pictures found in Boston were traced to a camera owned by Michael D. Arnett.

He has been charged with one count of producing child pornography and one count of possessing child pornography. Last week officers searched Arnett's Roeland Park home and said they found photos of a boy less than two years old, naked, in a roasting pan.

A neighbor told FOX 4 that he saw a team of federal investigators descend on Arnett's front yard and back yard.

"I never talked to the guy, but that's a shame if that's what's going on," said Dustin Vavak, neighbor.

Court documents state federal agents seized a variety of child porn images from the home including a picture of a naked child between the ages of one and two-years-old. Investigators believe the pictures were taken in Arnett's home.

Arnett told investigators he was co-guardian of one of the boys who was eight years old at the time and apparently lived with him.

If convicted of both charges, Arnett faces at least 25 years in prison. He is currently in federal custody.
