WHITE CLOUD, Mich. (WOOD) — A Michigan State Police trooper was arrested on child pornography charges when he showed up for work Thursday.

MSP said Devin Wilson was arraigned Friday in White Cloud on four criminal charges including possession of child sexually abusive material, distribution of child sexually abusive material and use of a computer to commit a felony.

MSP’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, part of its Computer Crimes Unit, started investigating him after getting a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. He was arrested Thursday and his home was searched.

Wilson joined MSP in 2012 and is assigned to the Hart Post, the agency says. He has been placed on unpaid suspension pending the outcome of the criminal case.

Regardless of whether he’s convicted, he may still lose his job if MSP determines he violated department policy.
