La Plata County Deputy Jason Sutter has been arrested on suspicion of possessing child pornography

DURANGO, Colo. - A deputy with the La Plata County Sheriff's Office has been arrested on suspicion of possessing child pornography.

Authorities say Jason Sutter was arrested Tuesday after turning himself in.

According to the Durango Herald, investigators aren't sure if Sutter also distributed the photos, but they don't believe any of the victims are local children.

"We're still investigating as far as taking a look at the data retrieved and are trying to get a better understanding of where (the photos) may have come from," Bayfield Marshal Joe McIntyre told the Herald.

Sutter has been suspended during the investigation.

An attorney for Sutter could not be located for comment.
