A Lincoln County man is in custody for allegedly possessing child pornography.

Scott Gill, 25, was arrested and booked into the Lincoln County Jail Thursday by investigators from the the Attorney General's Cyber Crime Unit.

Authorities said the charges surfaced after an investigation into the trafficking of images of child exploitation led to a warrant to search his residence. If convicted, Gill faces up to 40 years in prison.
