MADISON, Wis. -

The state’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force made an arrest in Sauk County, authorities said.

John L. Lomax, 50, of Baraboo, was charged Thursday with possession of child pornography following a Tuesday search of his home, according to a statement from the Wisconsin attorney general’s office.

The attorney general’s office said special agents from the Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation searched Lomax’s home at 830 W. Pine St. in Baraboo with Lomax's consent.

According to the criminal complaint, a DCI agent reviewed images and one video recovered from a computer hard drive found at the house and reported the images to be consistent with child pornography.

Lomax was charged on suspicion of four counts of possession of child pornography, a felony, the statement said.

The report said the Waukesha Police Department and the Sauk County Sheriff’s Office assisted in this investigation and are both members of Wisconsin's ICAC Task Force.
