A nationwide effort to crack down on child pornography and Internet sex crimes leads investigators to make several arrests all over the country, including a 30-year-old man from Owensboro.

Jason Wilkie is facing 20 counts of having inappropriate pictures of young girls and 20 counts of distributing them. Wilkie was arrested Tuesday at his home on East 21st St.

Investigators say there are dozens of national task forces working to stop Internet crimes this month.
