A Grand Junction man is behind bars after police say they found hundreds of child pornography pictures on his computer.

Officers took 33-year-old Joshua Jenkins into custody early Saturday morning after he was pulled over for a routine traffic stop and authorities learned he had a warrant out for his arrest.

Jenkins was arrested back in July on meth related charges, and officials say it was during that investigation that they found 187 pornographic images of children on his computer.

Jenkins was out on bond for the July incident when he was arrested Saturday morning.

He was booked into the Mesa County Jail on sexual exploitation of a child and new meth related charges. His bond has been set at $70,000.
