CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say they have arrested a Clovis man on child pornography charges.

Investigators with the Curry County Sheriff's Office say they took 56-year-old Keith Benoit into custody Friday and charged him with 100 counts of sexual exploitation of children.

County sheriff's deputies, with assistance from the Roosevelt County Sheriff's Office, say they executed a search warrant at Benoit's home and found at least 100 images on his computer that showed children of prepubescent age engaged in sexual acts.

Authorities say Benoit was booked into the Curry County Adult Detention Center with his bond set at $500,000.
