The task force investigation into the crimes resulted in detectives asking a judge for a warrant in order to perform a search of his home, where they confiscated multiple electronic devices.
Authorities say that 54-year-old Roger Canada now faces two individual felony counts of child exploitation and five individual felony counts of child pornography.
Officers arrested Canada after serving a search warrant on Thursday at his residence near Albany and Manker streets in Indianapolis, where neighbors were stunned to find out that someone so close to them was a pedophile.
Indiana State Police Sergeant Christopher Cecil says that a joint operation led to a lengthy investigation by ISP and the Indiana Crimes Against Children Task Force.
As a result of that investigation over a period of several months, it inevitably led to the search that uncovered several pornographic images portraying children on computers inside Canada's residence.
Police say that Canada has since been arrested and is now incarcerated at the Marion County Adult Processing Center awaiting trial.
