HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A convicted felon has been arrested and charged with having child porn videos on a computer storage device.

Stephen Bailey, 50, of Huntington was arrested Wednesday night at his residence and charged with possession of child pornography.

U.S. Marshal John Lajeunesse said Bailey had the videos on a removeable zip drive.

According to the criminal complaint, Huntington Polcie said that during a digital examination of the device several videos of photos were located.

"Nobody likes this on their streets," Lajeunesse said. "You just can't have it, you can't. You know, we deal with the drugs, we deal with the robberies, with the thefts, but there is certain accused crimes that just kind of get to the bone of everybody. Anytime we can get that cleaned up a little bit, it's a great day."

Authorities say Bailey previously served prison time for armed robbery.

More charges will be presented to a grand jury.
