A Mars Hill, NC man has been arrested and faces child pornography charges after a joint investigation between deputies in Yancey and Madison counties.

The Yankey County Sheriff's Office charged 54-year-old Charles Ray Lunsford with distribution and possession of child pornography after an online investigation into individuals that are trading files over the Internet.

Yankey County detectives notified Madison County authorities due to the crime having occurred in their area.

Deputies said both agencies worked together to get warrants for Lunsford's residence.

On April 29, officers executed the search warrant and found files of child pornography on a computer.

Deputies said the investigation is ongoing and more charges are likely.

Lunsford is being held in Madison County Jail on $100,000 secured bond.
