CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. -

A former Tennessee Department of Correction employee and his wife were arrested Friday morning following a grand jury indictment relating to images of child pornography found at the couple's home.

Dexter Mason, 66, was booked into the Montgomery County jail on 21 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, four counts of aggravated sexual battery and one count of tampering with evidence.

Mason's wife Mary was charged with one count tampering with evidence.

Detectives began investigating Dexter Mason last summer and found more than 150 images of prepubescent children engaged in sexual activity or simulated sexual activity on three computers seized from his residence.

Additionally, police determined he had inappropriately touched two juvenile females.

Mason previously worked for the Tennessee Department of Correction as a manager for probation and parole.  He began working for the department in 1990 and retired last September.
