CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. -

Clarksville police arrested a former Tennessee Department of Correction employee Tuesday after finding numerous images of child pornography on three computers seized from his home.

Detectives began investigating Dexter Mason in August after receiving a tip from the Tennessee Department of Children's Services.

During the investigation, three computers were taken from Mason's Bluff Drive residence.

On them, examiners found numerous images of prepubescent children engaged in sexual activity or simulated sexual activity.

Mason, 66, was charged with sexual exploitation of a minor and booked into the Montgomery County jail on a $150,000 bond.
 
Police said the investigation is ongoing and additional charges are expected.

Dorinda Carter, spokesperson for the Tennessee Department of Correction, told Nashville's News 2 Mason was a manager for probation and parole.  He began working for the department in 1990 and retired in September of this year.
