One person was taken into custody after agents obtained hundreds of images of child sexual abuse from an online user, according to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.

OSBI said on May 17, the OSBI's Internet Crimes Against Children Unit conducted an online investigation into child pornography distribution.

During the investigation, the OSBI said agents were able to identify 19-year-old Kevin Berit Goelz as being in possession of a large quantity of images containing child sexual abuse.

The OSBI said on Wednesday, special agents, along with other law enforcement agencies, served a search warrant at a residence in Blanchard, Oklahoma, and arrested Goelz.
