Abram Hensley will face possession of child pornography charges.

When officials went to make the arrest, a security officer at his employer, Baker Hughes, gave them the wrong job site. Officers went back to the security guard to follow up.

The report says the security officer didn't ask a manager where Henley was actually working.

According to the report, he told agents he would prefer if they waited a few hours to arrest Hensley so that he could finish his job in the field. Documents say he thought the company would lose hundreds of thousands of dollars if Hensley didn't finish his work.

Police contacted Baker Hughes corporate office and were able to track down and arrest Hensley.

In a statement to News West 9, Baker Hughes says,

"We can't comment on the details of an ongoing criminal investigation. However, Bakes Hughes takes seriously its commitment to cooperate with law enforcement officials in investigations of alleged criminal activity. To our knowledge, no criminal complaint has been filed against Baker Hughes."

If convicted, Hensley will face a minimum of 15 years in federal prison.
