PARADISE, Calif.- The Butte County Sheriff's Office arrested a Paradise man on June 14 for a felony count of possession of over 600 images of child pornography and for a felony count of possession of child pornography portraying sexual masochism. 

In 2020, detectives started investigating Terry Rogers, 68, of Paradise and found evidence that Rogers was downloading child porn. 

On June 11 detectives conducted a traffic stop on Rogers and served a search warrant on his residence on the 5000 Block of Royal Point Dr. 

Police collected several of Rogers' electronics. A forensics search of the devices revealed over 600 images of child pornography.

There was also evidence found that shows Rogers was the person that downloaded the child porn, according to the Butte County Sheriff's Office. 

Rogers was booked into the Butte County Jail following his arrest and he later posted bail. 

Rogers is scheduled for arraignment at the Butte County Superior Court on Sept. 3 at 8:30 a.m.
