SUN CITY (CBS5) - A former Maricopa County sheriff's posse member was arrested Thursday after a computer repair company said they found hundreds of child porn images on his computer.

Roger Byg, of Sun City, was booked into the Fourth Avenue Jail on 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

The computer repair technician told investigators the discovery occurred on March 3. The technician said the images "were extremely disturbing," MCSO said.

On Thursday, detectives with MCSO's Computer Crimes Division executed a search warrant at Byg's home.

Investigators said they found a laptop containing "a substantial amount of child pornography images."

The children ranged in age from 3 to 14 years old, MCSO said.

Byg resigned from the posse early last year. He had also served on the board for a short time.
