Investigators with the Oklahoma Internet Crimes Against Children task force from the Guthrie Police Department arrested a man accused of distributing child pornography.

On Thursday, police arrested 39-year-old Lee Myrick at his home at 313 E. Kuhl Terrace in Oklahoma City.

Investigators say Myrick distributed child pornography to an undercover Guthrie officer and a member of the OSBI Internet Crimes Against Children Unit.

Earlier in the day Thursday, task-force members from the Guthrie Police Department, Oklahoma Attorney General's Office, and the OSBI ICAC Unit assisted by the Oklahoma Police Department served a search warrant at Myrick's residence.

After inspecting Myrick's computer, investigators found thousands of sexually explicit images of children.

Myrick was taken into custody and booked into the Oklahoma County Jail on two counts of Distribution of Child Pornography, one count of Aggravated Possession of Child Pornography and one count of Violation of the Oklahoma Computer Crimes Act.

The investigation is working to determine if any local children are in the images.
